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,
    • "Little Wild Baby," in Edmund Clarence Stedman, An American Anthology 1787-1900 ()
