From dream to dream with her to rove,
Like fairy nurse with hermit child,

Teach her to think, to pray, to love,
Make grief less bitter, joy less wild:

These were thy tasks; and who can say
What visions high, what solemn talk,

What flashes of unearthly day
Might bless those infants' evening walk.

Oft as with arms and hearts entwined,
They mused aloud, this twilight hour,

What awful truths high God hath shrined
In every star, and #. and flower.

But one day, when the glorious theme
Seemed but to mock their feeble sight,

As they looked up from earth's dark dream,
To worlds where all is pure and bright,

Strong in the strength of infancy,
In little children's wisdom wise,

They heard a voice say “Come to me;
Yours is the kingdom of the skies!”

They speed them home, one prayer they breathe,
Then down in peace together lie:

This cannot be the sleep of death,
Or sure it must be sweet to die.
