If thou art sleeping, maiden (1872)

If thou art sleeping, maiden

If thou art sleeping, maiden,
Awake, and open thy door;
’Tis the break of day
And we must away
O’er meadow and mount and moor.
Wait not to find thy slippers,
But, come with thy naked feet;
We shall have to pass
Through the dewy grass
And waters wide and fleet.
