CARE, by            
First Line: All in the leafy darkness, when sleep had passed me by
Last Line: And while the whole world slept.


ALL in the leafy darkness, when sleep had passed me by,
I knew the surging of the sea --
Though never wave were nigh.
All in the leafy darkness, unbroken by a star,
There came the clamorous call of day,
While yet the day was far.
All in the leafy darkness, woven with hushes deep,
I heard the vulture wings of Fear
Above me tireless sweep;
The sea of Doubt, the dread of day, upon me surged and swept
All in the leafy darkness,
And while the whole world slept.
