Poems and Lyrics

    Sweet dreams, for a shade
    O'er my lovely infant's head,
    Sweet dreams of pleasant streams
    By happy silent moony beams.

    Sweet sleep, with soft down
    Weave thy brows an infant crown.
    Sweet sleep, Angel mild,
    Hover o'er my happy child.

    Sweet smiles, in the night
    Hover over my delight;
    Sweet smiles, Mother's smiles,
    All the livelong night beguiles.

    Sweet moans, dovelike sighs,
    Chase not slumber from thy eyes.
    Sweet moans, sweeter smiles,
    All the dovelike moans beguiles.

    Sleep, sleep, happy child.
    All creation slept and smil'd
    Sleep, sleep, happy sleep,
    While o'er thee thy mother weep.

    Sweet babe, in thy face
    Holy image I can trace.
    Sweet babe, once like thee
    Thy maker lay and wept for me,

    Wept for me, for thee, for all,
    When he was an infant small.
    Thou his image ever see,
    Heavenly face that smiles on thee,

    Smiles on thee, on me, on all,
    Who became an infant small.
    Infant smiles are his own smiles;
    Heaven and earth to peace beguiles.

    - William Blake 1757-1827
