First Line: To live within a cave - it is most good
Last Line: They have a cheerful warmth -- those ashes on the stone.
Alternate Author Name(s): Brown, T. E.
Subject(s): Caves; Caverns


TO live within a cave -- it is most good;
But, if God make a day,
And some one come, and say,
'Lo! I have gather'd faggots in the wood!'
E'en let him stay,
And light a fire, and fan a temporal mood!

So sit till morning! when the light is grown
That he the path can read,
Then bid the man God-speed!
His morning is not thine: yet must thou own
They have a cheerful warmth -- those ashes on the stone.
