Dawn talks to‑day

Language: English

            Dawn talks to-day
               Over dew-gleaming flowers,
            Night flies away
               Till the resting of hours:
            Fresh are thy feet
               And with dreams thine eyes glistening,
            Thy still lips are sweet
               Though the world is a-listening.
O Love, set a word in my mouth for our meeting,
Cast thine arms round about me to stay my heart's beating!
O fresh day, O fair day, O long day made ours !
