Darling creature, solitary wanderer,
Think not you are alone in seeming so.
God's sweet angels guard every traveller,
And guide them safely where they have to go.
So sleep in Nature's bosom, safe from harm,
And worry not what tomorrow will bring.
While you in slumbers lie, Cherubs will charm
The wild and make it a lullaby sing.
Storming rain and wind will kiss and bless you,
And Winter will be mild to Nature's child.
All Season's will in season nurture you,
No matter if by man you are reviled.
Earth's golden globe will rise with you at dawn,
And move with you until you wish to rest,
Then night's bright gems will shine on you till morn,
When day calls you to yet another quest.
Forgotten one, Heaven remembers you,
And ever watches you with loving eyes.
Fear not to die, for it's a mortal's due,
And passage is to God's sweet paradise.
So wander, darling creature, on your way.
Sleep sound at night and travel light by day.
