by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

Baby lies so fast asleep
Language: English 
Baby lies so fast asleep
  That we cannot wake her:
Will the angels clad in white
  Fly from heaven to take her?

Baby lies so fast asleep
  That no pain can grieve her;
Put a snowdrop in her hand,
  Kiss her once and leave her.
