(Hand-sewn on teabag mesh)
 
 
Steep us in sleep, sweet chamomile.
In let it seep, despite all our guile.
Steep us in sleep, sweet chamomile.
Spare us time’s creep, the ticking clock’s trial.
Steep us in sleep, sweet chamomile.
If we should weep, watch over a while.
Steep us in sleep, sweet chamomile.
