Oak and Ivy

To Her Who has ever been My guide, Teacher, and Inspiration - My Mother, This little volume is affectionately inscribed.

Copyright 1893


Sing me, sweet, a soothing psalm,
Holy, tender, low, and calm,
Full of drowsy words and dreamy,
Sleep half seen where the sides are seamy;
Lay my head upon your breast;
Sing me to rest.
