The Reaper

Original Text: 
The Poetry of Father Tabb: John Banister Tabb, ed. Francis A. Litz (New York: Dodd, Mead, and Co., 1927): 93-94. PS 2965 A2 1928
2Down the dusky slope of noon
3With thy sickle of a moon
4     Goest thou to reap.
5"Fields of Fancy by the stream
6Of night in silvery silence gleam,
7To heap with many a harvest-dream
8     The granary of Sleep."
