Poems Daybreak

Y

Yours

A wind came up out of the sea,
And said: "O mists, make room for me!"


It hailed the ships, and cried: "Sail on,
Ye mariners, the night is gone."


And hurried landward far away,
Crying: "Awake! it is the day.”


It said unto the forest : " Shout!
Hang all your leafy banners out!


It touched the wood-bird's folded wing,
And said : " O bird, awake and sing !"


It whispered to the fields of corn :
"Bow down, and hail the coming morn!"


It shouted through the belfry tower:
"Awake, O bell! proclaim the hour."


- Henry W. Longfellow
