AT noon, the cruel blow fell on his heart.
By night the sleepless tear would sudden start
And make a hell of memory; he said:
"When the day glimmers they will find me dead."
But, lo, a miracle! The sun uprose,
And gave him strength to meet whatever foes;
The morning magic swift around him drew
An amulet of ardor and of dew.
