First Line: Up from the kindled pines
Last Line: And day is done.
Subject(s): Sun


Up from the kindled pines,
Lo, the lord Sun!
What shall his children find
When day is done?
Ere thy feet follow him
Over the sea,
Love, turn thy glorious
Eyes once to me!
High in the burning noon,
Lo, the lord Sun
Sleeps, with his hand slack,
His girdle undone.
Ere thy feet follow him
Over the hill,
Love, lace thy heart to mine,
Time has stood still.
Down by the valley-night
Sings the great sea;
Over the mountain rim
Day walks for thee.
Ere thy feet follow him
Into far lands,
Love, lift thy mouth to me
Up through thy hands!
Well do they journey
Who joy as they go;
Hear his hills whispering,
"So, it is so."
Ere thy feet follow him
Down to the shade,
Love, loose thy zone to me,
Mistress and maid!
Down to the kindling pines,
Lo, the lord Sun
Goes unreluctant
And day is done.
