Louisa Stuart Costello

Here you will find the Poem Lines.I cannot sleep of poet Louisa Stuart Costello

Lines.I cannot sleep

I cannot sleep?my nights glide on 

 In one unbroken thought of thee; 

And when the gloomy shades are gone, 

 I start the dawning light to see. 

And as I watch the rising morn 

 Gain slowly o'er the yielding sky, 

And mark another day new born, 

 That glows so brightly?yet must die? 

I think how all the hopes we cherish 

 As transient, though as bright, will be; 

And frailest of the hopes that perish 

 Were mine, that told of love and thee!
