... as phantasy conceives — Echoes wrought of cricket -cries Sifted through the
leaves. O'er the rose, with drowsy buzz, Hangs the bee, and stays his kiss, Even
as my fancy does, Gypsy, over this. Let us both be children — share Youth's glad

As the bubbles go. A SLEEPING BEAUTY. A SLEEPING BEAUTY. I. AN alien
wind.
