SONGS OF TRAVEL: 20, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The morning drum-call on my eager ear
Last Line: (my work untrimmed) the sunset gun too soon.
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour


The morning drum-call on my eager ear
Thrills unforgotten yet; the morning dew
Lies yet undried along my field of noon.
But now I pause at whiles in what I do,
And count the bell, and tremble lest I hear
(My work untrimmed) the sunset gun too soon.
