Alfred Lord Tennyson

Here you will find the Poem Minnie and Winnie of poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

Minnie and Winnie

Minnie and Winnie
 Slept in a shell.
Sleep, little ladies!
 And they slept well.

Pink was the shell within,
 Silver without;
Sounds of the great sea
 Wander'd about.

Sleep, little ladies!
 Wake not soon!
Echo on echo
 Dies to the moon.

Two bright stars
 Peep'd into the shell.
"What are you dreaming of?
 Who can tell?"

Started a green linnet
 Out of the croft;
Wake, little ladies,
 The sun is aloft!
