Poems.
VI. Dream Land
By Frances Anne Kemble (1809–1893)
 
WHEN in my dreams thy lovely face,
Smiles with unwonted tender grace,
Grudge not the precious seldom cheer;
I know full well, my lady dear!
It is no boon of thine.        5
 
In thy sweet sanctuary of sleep,
If my sad sprite should kneeling weep,
Suffer its speechless worship there;
Thou know’st full well, my lady fair!
It is no fault of mine.        10
