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 sanctu’ry 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
