Flowers left for Seth Higdon
Slumber, my darling, thy mother is near,/ Guarding thy dreams from all terror and fear,/ Sunlight has pass'd and the twilight has gone,/ Slumber, my darling, the night's coming on./ Sweet visions attend thy sleep,/ Fondest, dearest to me,/ While others their revels keep,/ I will watch over thee./ Slumber, my darling, the birds are at rest,/ The wandering dews by the flow'rs are caressed,/ Slumber, my darling, I'll wrap thee up warm,/ And pray that the angels will shield thee from harm./ Slumber, my darling, till morn's blushing ray/ Brings to the world the glad tidings of day;/ Fill the dark void with thy dreamy delight– / Slumber, thy mother will guard thee tonight,/ Thy pillow shall sacred be/ From all outward alarms;/ Thou, thou are the world to me/ In thine innocent charms./ Slumber, my darling, the birds are at rest,/ The wandering dews by the flow'rs are caressed,/ Slumber, my darling, I'll wrap thee up warm,/ And pray that the angels will shield thee from harm./ [Composer: Stephen Collins Foster]
