Noiselessly as the daylight
Comes when the night is done,
As the shade went up
And the ambulance came crashing through the dust
The sky sinks in the morning, this fact has been insufficiently observed.
As night is withdrawn
From these sweet-springing meads and bursting boughs of May,
And not by eastern windows only,
When daylight comes, comes in the light;
Nor dim nor red, like God's own head,
The glorious Sun uprist:
I watch the white stars darken;
the day comes and the
An angel, robed in spotless white,
Bent down and kissed the sleeping Night.
Already determined dawn began to lay
In place across a cloud the slender ray
Dawn-sniffing revenant,
Plodder through midnight rain,
Question me again.
