LIFE, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Forenoon and afternoon and night - forenoon
Last Line: And time is conquered, and thy crown is won.
Alternate Author Name(s): Hedbrooke, Andrew
Subject(s): Religion; Theology

FORENOON and afternoon and night, -- Forenoon,
And afternoon, and night, -- Forenoon, and -- what!
The empty song repeats itself. No more?
Yea, that is Life: make this forenoon sublime,
This afternoon a psalm, this night a prayer,
And Time is conquered, and thy crown is won.
