Sleep Song
         The Lady World
Is sleeping on her white and cloudy bed.
         Like petals furled
Her eyelids close. Beside her dream-filled head
   Her lover stands in silver cloak and shoon,
   The faithful Moon.
         So Love, my Love,
Sleep on, my Love, my Life, be not afraid.
         The Moon above
Shall guard the World, and I my little maid.
   Your life, your love, your dreams are mine to keep,
   So sleep, so sleep.
