The Morn! she is the source of all sighs,
The very face to make us sad;
If but to think in other times
The same calm quiet look she had.

Taps at the slumberer's window pane,
And seems to say,
Break, break from the enchanter's chain,

Its live-song to the morn;

To the rose just newly born.

That, ere the glorious sun be born,
By some soft touch invisible
Around his path are taught to swell.

Lifts up her purple wing, and in the vales
The gentle wind, a sweet and passionate wooer,
Kisses the blushing leaf.

Feel the fresh breathing of To-morrow creep.

Like a golden-shielded army
Marching to the uplands fair.

Like a young girl over her hoary sire.
