Lullaby
By Florence Kilpatrick Mixter
 
COME, sleep. Her heart’s a wood-anemone.
      Her thoughts are swallows flown
Across the dusk. Her hair’s a willow-tree
      By the west wind blown.
Her eyes are pools where bubbles rise and break—        5
      Dream-bubbles from the deep.
Her soul’s a moth that flutters in their wake.
      Come sleep…. come sleep….
