EDWARD ROWLAND SILL
American poet
(1841 - 1887)

Yet 'twill only be a sleep:
  When, with songs and dewy light,
    Morning blossoms out of Night,
      She will open her blue eyes
        'Neath the palms of Paradise,
          While we foolish ones shall weep.
      - Sleeping [Death]

Earth bears no balsams for mistakes;
  Men crown the knave, and scourge the tool
    That did his will: but thou, O Lord,
      Be merciful to me, a fool.
      - The Fool's Prayer [Prayer]

'Tis not by guilt the onward sweep
  Of truth and right, O Lord, we stay;
    'Tis by our follies that so long
      We hold the earth from heaven away.
      - The Fool's Prayer [Folly]
