Treasure Island

William Ernest Henley

(1849 - 1902 / Gloucester / England)

Thick Is The Darkness


Thick is the darkness -
Sunward, O, sunward!
Rough is the highway -
Onward, still onward!

Dawn harbours surely
East of the shadows.
Facing us somewhere
Spread the sweet meadows.

Upward and forward!
Time will restore us:
Light is above us,
Rest is before us.
