1136. The Way the Baby Woke
 
By James Whitcomb Riley
 
 
AND this is the way the baby woke:
  As when in deepest drops of dew
The shine and shadows sink and soak,
  The sweet eyes glimmered through and through;
And eddyings and dimples broke        5
  About the lips, and no one knew
Or could divine the words they spoke,—
And this is the way the baby woke.
