A Little Angel

Far away on a billow
an angel lays down his head
upon a cloud-tufted pillow
with a sky-line for his bed.

A shroud of star-glow around him
and the moonlight's impending ray.
Misty evening light grows dim
as dusk overtakes the day.

Sweet love enclosed in his breast
with never a thought of sorrow.
The little angel takes his rest.
Sweet dreams to hail tomorrow.

Petite roses in his cheeks,
a crimson blush upon his lips;
and though his heart never speaks,
it is shown in morn's eclipse.

I love my little angel, mine.
He is such a beautiful sight
drifting on high beyond the brine,
free of the bounds of night.

Little angel with dove-white wings
sends a tender kiss to me.
A choir of heaven's angels sings -
a song that sets me free.

I cannot see his gold-lit curls -
his pathway of love and light
sending love to all little girls
that have wept within the night.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
