Hear the voice of the bard!
Who Present, Past, & Future sees,
Whose ears have heard
The Holy Word
That walk'd among the ancient trees;

Calling the lapsed Soul
And weeping in the evening dew;
That might controll
The starry pole,
And fallen fallen light renew!

"O Earth, O Earth return!
Arise from out the dewy grass;
Night is worn,
And the morn
Rises from the slumberous mass.

"Turn away no more:
Why wilt thou turn away?
The starry floor
The watry shore
Is giv'n thee till the break of day."
