Sweet And Low

: Boys And Girls Bookshelf

By Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Sweet and low, sweet and low,

Wind of the Western Sea.

Low, low, breathe and blow,

Wind of the Western Sea!

Over the rolling waters go,

Come from the dying Moon, and blow,

Blow him again to me;

While my little one, while my pretty one, sleeps.

Sleep and rest, sleep and rest,

Father will come to thee soon;

Rest, rest on Mother's breast,

Father will come to thee soon;

Father will come to his Babe in the Nest,

Silver sails all out of the West

Under the Silver Moon;

Sleep, my little one, sleep my pretty one, sleep.
