The dogs did bark, the children screamed,Up flew the windows all;And every soul cried out, "Well done!"As loud as he could bawl.
Sweet sleep be with us, one and all!And if upon its stillness fallThe visions of a busy brain,We'll have our pleasure o'er again,To warm the heart, to charm the sight,Gay dreams to all! good night, good night.joanna baillie
Alas for love, if thou wert all,And naught beyond, O Earth!felicia hemans
