as from the silence and gloom, Another gay morning shall rise, So,
bursting awake from the tomb, We shall mount far away to the skies.
And those, who with meekness and prayer In the paths of religion
have trod, Shall worship all glorious there, Among the archangels
of God. The sun rises bright in the air, The dews of the morning
are dry, Men and beasts to their labors repair, And the lark wings
his way to the sky: Now fresh from his moss-dappled shed, The
husbandman trudges along, And like the lark over his head, Begins
the new day with a song. Just now all around was so still, Not a
bird drew his head from his wing; Not an echo was heard from the
hill, Not a water-fly dipped in the spring; Now, every thing wakes
from its sleep, The shepherd boy pipes to his flock, The common is
speckled with sheep, And cheerfully clamors the cock. Now, winding
along on the road Half hid by the hedges so gay, The wagon drags
slow with its load, And its bells tinkle, tinkle, away. Vol. v. 19
The husbandman follows his plough. Across the brown fallow field's
slope, And toils in the sweat of his brow, Repaid by the pleasures
of hope. The city, so noisy and wide, Begins to look smoky and
gray, Now business, and pleasure, and pride, March each in a
different way. My lord, and my lady so fair, The merchant, with
dignified look, And all to their business repair, From the nobleman
down to his cook. For the. dews of the morning have flown, And the
sun rises bright in the sky; Alike in the field and the town, Men
and beasts to their labor apply, And idle no hand must remain, Nor
eye sink in slumber so dark, For evening is coming again, And the
night, in which no man can work. And what is our life but a day ?
