That very night while gentle sleep
The urchin's eyelids kissed,
Two stern-faced men set out from Lynn,
Through the cold and heavy mist;
And Eugene Aram walked between,
With gyves upon his wrist.
A wife who preaches in her gown,
And lectures in her night-dress.
We watched her breathing through the night,
Her breathing soft and low,
As in her breast the wave of life
Kept heaving to and fro.
I remember, I remember
The house where I was born,
The little window where the sun
Came peeping in at morn;
He never came a wink too soon
Nor brought too long a day;
But now, I often wish the night
Had borne my breath away.
I love thee - I love thee,
'Tis all that I can say,
It is my vision in the night,
My dreaming in the day.
Quote of the day
I hate myself because I am not beautiful. I hate myself because I am fat.
