As Children bid the Guest “Good Night”

As Children bid the Guest “Good Night”

As Children bid the Guest “Good Night”
And then reluctant turn
My flowers raise their pretty lips
Then put their nightgowns on.

As children caper when they wake
Merry that it is Morn
My flowers from a hundred cribs
Will peep, and prance again.


Poem As Children bid the Guest “Good Night” - Emily Dickinson
