Sunset at Night — is natural –

Sunset at Night -- is natural --Sunset at Night — is natural –
But Sunset on the Dawn
Reverses Nature — Master –
So Midnight’s — due — at Noon.

Eclipses be — predicted –
And Science bows them in –
But do one face us suddenly –
Jehovah’s Watch — is wrong.

A Tongue — to tell Him I am true!

A Tongue -- to tell Him I am true!A Tongue — to tell Him I am true!
Its fee — to be of Gold –
Had Nature — in Her monstrous House
A single Ragged Child –

To earn a Mine — would run
That Interdicted Way,
And tell Him — Charge thee speak it plain –
That so far — Truth is True?

And answer What I do –
Beginning with the Day
That Night — begun –
Nay — Midnight — ’twas –
Since Midnight — happened — say –

If once more — Pardon — Boy –
The Magnitude thou may
Enlarge my Message — If too vast
Another Lad — help thee –

Thy Pay — in Diamonds — be –
And His — in solid Gold –
Say Rubies — if He hesitate –
My Message — must be told –

Say — last I said — was This –
That when the Hills — come down –
And hold no higher than the Plain –
My Bond — have just begun –

And when the Heavens — disband –
And Deity conclude –
Then — look for me. Be sure you say –
Least Figure — on the Road –

The Morning after Woe –

The Morning after Woe --The Morning after Woe –
‘Tis frequently the Way –
Surpasses all that rose before –
For utter Jubilee –

As Nature did not care –
And piled her Blossoms on –
And further to parade a Joy
Her Victim stared upon –

The Birds declaim their Tunes –
Pronouncing every word
Like Hammers — Did they know they fell
Like Litanies of Lead –

On here and there — a creature –
They’d modify the Glee
To fit some Crucifixal Clef –
Some Key of Calvary –

It struck me — every Day –

It struck me -- every Day --It struck me — every Day –
The Lightning was as new
As if the Cloud that instant slit
And let the Fire through –

It burned Me — in the Night –
It Blistered to My Dream –
It sickened fresh upon my sight –
With every Morn that came –

I though that Storm — was brief –
The Maddest — quickest by –
But Nature lost the Date of This –
And left it in the Sky –

Nature — sometimes sears a Sapling –

Nature -- sometimes sears a Sapling --Nature — sometimes sears a Sapling –
Sometimes — scalps a Tree –
Her Green People recollect it
When they do not die –

Fainter Leaves — to Further Seasons –
Dumbly testify –
We — who have the Souls –
Die oftener — Not so vitally –
