NIGHT AND MORNING SONGS: 9. A MAD MAID'S SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The day had a sunless dawning
Last Line: Find sweetness in death's peace.


THE day had a sunless dawning,
The lark forgot to sing --
Is this the lark that creeps in the grass
With a trailing wounded wing?

My tears with the rain are mingled:
Of rain and tears I am fain,
For I and all the other flowers
Are sweetest after rain.

The day has a sunless ending;
The rain will never cease;
The other flowers, weary and wrecked,
Find sweetness in death's peace.
