Loves Lantern

 (For Aline)

Because the road was steep and long
And through a dark and lonely land,
God set upon my lips a song
And put a lantern in my hand.
Through miles on weary miles of night That stretch relentless in my way My lantern burns serene and white, An unexhausted cup of day.
O golden lights and lights like wine, How dim your boasted splendors are.
Behold this little lamp of mine; It is more starlike than a star!
