by Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881)

So there hath been dawning
Another blue day.
Think, wilt thou let it
Slip useless away?
Out of eternity
This new day is born;
Into eternity
At night, will return.

Behold it aforetime
No eye ever did:
So soon it forever
From all eyes is hid.
Here hath been dawning
Another blue day.
Think, wilt thou let it
Slip useless away?
