Charlotte's Poem

"Sleep sleep, my love, my only

Deep, deep in the dung and the dark;

Be not afraid and be not lonely!

This is the hour when frogs and thrushes

Praise the world from the woods and the rushes.

Rest from care, my one my only,

Deep in the dung and the dark!"

Written by E.B. White.
