Margaret Thomson Janvier
“Little wild baby, that knowest not where thou art going, / Lie still! lie still! Thy mother will do the rowing. / The river flows swiftly, the sea is dark and deep; / Little wild baby, lie still! Lie still and sleep.”
Margaret Thomson Janvier, U.S. poet, writer
(1845 - 1913)
Also wrote as Margaret Vandegrift.
