Nesta’s Morning Song
By Ernest Rhys
I LIVED in the shadow,
  The vesper-moth mine
That hates the green meadow
  And yellow sunshine—
        The merry sunshine.        5
Like one of the host
  That fell out of heaven,
I doubted, I lost,
  My angels out-driven—
        My archangels seven.        10
  O sorrow, my raiment,
  And trouble, my care;
  You are paid with a payment:
  The Day-dawn is there—
        God’s-gold in his hair.        15
  Now come out of prison,
  And step out of night;
  And greet him, new risen,
  My Day of delight,
        My lovely delight.        20
