George Willis Cooke, comp.  The Poets of Transcendentalism: An Anthology.  1903.
 
Life
By Edward Rowland Sill (1841–1887)
 
FORENOON and afternoon and night,—Forenoon,
And afternoon, and night,—Forenoon, and—what!
The empty song repeats itself. No more?
Yes, that is Life: make this forenoon sublime,
This afternoon a psalm, this night a prayer,        5
And Time is conquered, and thy crown is won.
