Poem of the day

Cradle Song
by Florence Earle Coates (1850-1927)

Thy heart and mine are one, my dear,
⁠      At dawn and set of sun;
When skies are bright, when days are drear,
⁠      Thy heart and mine are one!

About us move the hapless folk
⁠      Whom paltry things estrange;
The friends that feel their bond a yoke,
⁠      The loves that lightly change;

But thou and I, my bonny child,
⁠      Their dangers blithely shun,
Nor can by folly be beguiled,—
⁠      For thou and I are one!
