George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
22. Waiting
 
 
WHEN the dawn comes forth I wonder
Will our sad, sad hearts awaken,
And the grief we laboured under
From the new-in-joy be shaken?
 
If the night be long in going,        5
All our souls will fix in sadness;
And the light of morning glowing
Waken in our eyes no gladness.
 
All unschooled in mirth we will not
Rouse forgotten joys from sleeping;        10
And the dawn our pain shall still not:
We will gaze on it with weeping.
