Subject(s): Day; Youth

WITH the little infant day
Wake, and play!
From the stars, grown pale behind,
See, his eyes are turned away!—
Blue are they,
Blue, and innocent, and kind.

He is young for any pain;—
But, with rain
Should his little life grow dim,
We are here to pity him.
Not in vain
Of the clouds shall he complain.

Tears of yours could Love, forget?—
Weeping, you?—
And his life is younger yet
Far, and earlier ended, too.
Every toy to please him set;—
Let him watch the things you do.
