SUN! Sun! Sun! Sun!
Chorus of earth-birds, chorus of sky-birds, myriad matins begun,
Cross-tangled adventurous music, anthems of awe,
Of appeal, adoration: litanies now of law,
And now raptured singings of trust in the truth of the light,
The Lighter's proud power, and the rich-altared East, all bedight
With the glimmer, the glow, and the glory, till it mounts into flame,
And the mass-music mightily swells to the sovereign Name—
Sun!
As his garment, incredibly golden, the edge of the world has won,
And life is astir, and love is alive, and the sighing and sleeping are
done;—
Sun! Sun! Sun!
