Song of the Night at Daybreak


ALL my stars forsake me,

And the dawn-winds shake me:

Where shall I betake me?

Whither shall I run

Till the set of the sun,

Till the day be done?

To the mountain-mine,

To the boughs o’ the pine,

To the blind man’s eyne,

To a brow that is

Bowed upon the knees,

Sick with memories.
