Subject(s): Morning


Behold! This world I made with many an elf,
With gnomes and little people of the hills,
With shadow kings and dukes and margravines,
With men-at-arms, with knights in panoply;
And all within my little empery --
My costly tournaments; my gallant scenes;
My hils of yellow furze; my little rills
That tinkled like a mass-bell; and my hives
Of honey bees; my owls that hoot o' night;
My cardinals, my bishops, and my priests,
My bannerets, my bugles, and my drums,
All of these fade, and mark you I myself
Am fading, like the moon, when morning comes ...
