Gracious Muse! lift thine eye from all too dark a night,
Else make beauteous my days through deep a slumber,
Uneclipsed of looks so fair, my mind, no eyes can see,
The inner depth of reality, hid away from out of sight;
Full many lovely things abound where least I find my love,
Yet to thee suffice, that one faculty alone thy merit hath won
To prove thee virtuous against all odds, all vicissitudes of the sky:
Then what needest I this mirror that shows not half thy part,
Unlooked for love my Lord's light, makes thy presence more sweet,
Than which to thy living memory's great heir hath rent a veil,
That in solemn strain this rhyme at the gallows of thy feet,
Oft goes unchecked by what I bring to the page, unused to flow,
From another shore to arise by the golden banks at morn,
Or awake to eternal bliss through e'eryday happenings.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
