Let me arise, and away
To the land that guards the dying day,
Whose burning tear, the evening-star,
Drops silently to the wave afar;
The land where summers never cease
Their sunny psalm of light and peace.
Whose moonlight, poured for years untold,
Has drifted down in dust of gold;
Those morning splendors, fallen in showers,
Leave ceaseless sunrise in the flowers.

-EDWARD ROWLAND SILL.
