George MacDonald Poems

Little Bo-Peep

Little Bo-Peep, she has lost her sheep,
And will not know where to find them;
They are over the height and out of sight,


Trust him in the common light;
Trust him in the awesome night;

Trust him when the earth doth quake:

Love Is Strength

Love alone is great in might,
Makes the heavy burden light,
Smooths rough ways to weary feet,
Makes the bitter morsel sweet:


Where did you come from, baby dear?
Out of the everywhere into here.


'Come, children, put away your toys;
Roll up that kite's long line;
The day is done for girls and boys-
