Enchanted Tulips and Other Verses for Children. Keary, M. (Maud).
page: 5


  • CURLY clouds of snowy white,
  • Fleecy islands in the light,
  • Prettier than cotton‐wool,
  • Come and be my bed to‐night.
  • E’en a king would not disdain
  • Golden cloud for counterpane,
  • White ones for the sheets so cool,
  • Pillows like a silken skein!
  • Oh! to sleep and dream, and wake
  • With the cloud’s first morning shake,
  • Hear the broad Earth stir below,
  • Watch the shining daylight break!
  • Lying safe upon my cloud,
  • Feeling like a fairy proud,
  • Sailing softly I should go,
  • Singing like the larks aloud!
