Invocation (2)

Edith Nesbit

Come to-night in a dream to-night,
Come as you used to do,
Come in the gown, in the gown of white,
Come in the ribbon of blue;

Come in the virgin's colours you wear,
Come through the dark and the dew,
Come with the scent of the night in your hair,
Come as you used to do.

Blue and white of your eyes and your face,
White of your gown and blue,
Will you not come from the happy place,
Come as you used to do?

Tears so many, so many tears
Where there were once so few,
Can they not wash the gray of the years
From the white of your gown and blue?
