From the publisher's preliminary note, "The writer begs to acknowledge the courtesy of Mr. Charles Dickens, who has permitted him to reprint his Contributions to 'Household Words.' He has partially availed himself of this permission by including 'Sleep', 'Unopened Buds,' and 'A Lost Treasure,' in the present volume, and reserves other contributions for a future collection."
A pasted-in bookseller slip & handwritten penciled note to the ffep attribute these 3 poems to Dickens, however, we note from Lohrli, these poems were actually written by one unidentified individual by the name of "Harris", presumed author of the this entire volume of verse.
