THY heart and mine are one, my dear,
     At dawn and set of sun;
When skies are bright, when days are drear,
     Thy heart and mine are one!

About us move the hapless folk
     Whom paltry things estrange;
The friends that feel their bond a yoke,
     The loves that lightly change;

But thou and I, my bonny child,
     Their dangers blithely shun,
Nor can by folly be beguiled,—
     For thou and I are one!
"Cradle Song" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Mine and Thine (1904) and Poems (1916) Volume II.
