George Pope Morris
The Day Is Now Dawning
The day is now dawning, love,
Fled is the night--
I go like the morning, love,
Cheerful and bright.
Then adieu, dearest Ellen:
When evening is near,
I'll visit thy dwelling,
For true love is here.
Oh, come where the fountain, love,
Beneath the green mountain, love,
Seek for repose;
There the days of our childhood,
In love's golden beam,
'Mong the blue-bells and wildwood,
Passed on like a dream.
Oh, linger awhile, love!
I must away,
Oh, grant me thy smile, love,
'Tis Hope's cheering ray--
With evening expect me.
To the moment be true,
And may angels protect thee--
Sweet Ellen, adieu!
Dear William, adieu!
