Here you will find the Poem Dear love, good-night of poet Augusta Davies Webster
DEAR love, good-night. And, tender sleep ,Seal up her lids like these drowsed flowers, To make day fair when they unclose. Be hushed around her, Night, and keep Thy silent guard on her repose; But speed thine hours. Dear love, sleep on. This weary space I wake and long for day and thee, And count the slow stars from their west. Sleep while I hunger for thy face, Sleep, dearest, in unbroken rest; But dream of me.
