(27 February 1807 – 24 March 1882 / Portland, Maine)

Song. (From The Portuguese) - Poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If thou art sleeping, maiden,
Awake, and open thy door:
'Tis the break of day, and we must away,
O'er meadow, and mount, and moor.

Wait not to find thy slippers,
But come with thy naked feet:
We shall have to pass through the dewy grass,
And waters wide and fleet.
