Washington SquareTO ALISON CUNNINGHAMFROM HER BOY For the long nights you lay awake And watched for my unworthy sake: For your most comfortable hand That led me through the uneven land: For all the story books you read: For all the pains you comforted: For all you pitied, all you bore, In sad and happy days of yore: My second Mother, my first Wife, The angel of my infant life From the sick child, now well and old, Take, nurse, the little book you hold! And grant it, Heaven, that all who read May find as dear a nurse at need, And every child who lists my rhyme, In the bright, fireside, nursery clime, May hear it in as kind a voice As made my childish days rejoice!
