I’ve seen the world as cradled in the night; The forms and colors shapeless as in death. It swallows all and leaves me not a breath Of hope that I shall ever find my sight. Then day is come and bathes the Earth in light, And hangs the hue of life as like a wreath. Like mighty hands that draw the sword from sheath; The light of day shall save the world from night. The fight can’t go forever on and on. What awesome force decides their final plight; That uses each as if it were a pawn? My only fear after the final fight: Shall we see at the end the day at dawn, Or will it be the dawning of the night?
