YOU'RE as lovely as a dawn of winds
Over the high hills calling:
Flush of gold as the last star fades,
Sound of waters falling;
Here are flowers on the dew-wet green
And the throbbing note of a bird unseen!

Break o' the day, the dawn is yours,
And the hush and the stir and the singing;
The poignant scent of a cañon rose
A small warm wind is bringing:
And, O, the stir of me, lift of me, thrill,
As the first light renders fine the hill!

Hush o' the night, when the stars are free
And the wind brings word of the river;
Answering word from the listening dark
Where haunted aspens quiver:
Yours is the heart of those who pray
In the passionate, silent forest way.
