DAY AND NIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Through my heart's palace thoughts unnumbered throng
Last Line: You, like a queen, pass out into the night.
Subject(s): Soldiers' Writings

Through my heart's palace Thoughts unnumbered throng;
And there, most quiet and, as a child, most wise,
High-throned you sit, and gracious. All day long
Great Hopes gold-armoured, jester Fantasies When the high
session of the day is ended,
And darkness comes; then, with the waning light,
By lilied maidens on your way attended,
Proud from the wonted throne, superbly swaying,
You, like a queen, pass out into the night.
