  1. In a balmy manner.
    • Samuel Taylor Coleridge, A Cradle Hymn
      Sleep, sweet babe! my cares beguiling:
      Mother sits beside thee smiling:
      Sleep, my darling, tenderly!
      If thou sleep not, mother mourneth,
      Singing as her wheel she turneth:
      Come, soft slumber, balmily.
