Sleep, Sleep, My Sweet One Sleep

Sleep, sleep, my sweet one sleep
Let the film of Morpheus come
Like a veiled mist
And visit your eye-lids
And in the airs around
Invisible a sweet sylph sings
A lulling lullaby.


Sleep, sleep, my sweet one sleep
And woes forget and ills
And wrongs and plots
And treacheries:
Like a veiled mist
Dreams are falling through
Falling
Falling
Falling thro’ your eye-lids thick
With the lead of Morpheus awhile
A sylph doth sing
A lulling lullaby.


Sleep, sleep, my sweet one sleep
And think of day and night
And dusk and dawn
And even
As one film images pass
Along your eyes a-dreaming
a-dreaming
A-dreaming
Awhile
A sylph doth sing
A lulling lullaby.

A very sweet lullaby. I love it.
Dear one will sleep and sleep after listening to these lines. Beautiful words.
A very sweet poem and an adorable lullaby where the singer is wary of evil forces, too. Thanks. Invisible a sweet sylph sings A lulling lullaby.... forget.... ills ....wrongs and plots.... And treacheries:
