Ralph Waldo Emerson, comp. (1803–1882).  Parnassus: An Anthology of Poetry.  1880.
 
Morning
By William Allingham (1824–1889)
 
SLEEP is like death, and after sleep,
The world seems new begun,
Its earnestness all clear and deep,
Its true solution won:
White thoughts stand luminous and firm,        5
Like statues in the sun.
Refreshed from supersensuous founts,
The soul to purer vision mounts.
