by Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)
O sweet To-morrow! - After to-day There will away This sense of sorrow. Then let us borrow Hope, for a gleaming Soon will be streaming, Dimmed by no gray - No gray! While the winds wing us Sighs from The Gone, Nearer to dawn Minute-beats bring us; When there will sing us Larks of a glory Waiting our story Further anon - Anon! Doff the black token, Don the red shoon Right and returned Viol strings broken; Null the words spoken In speeches of rueing, The night cloud is hueing, Tomorrow shines soon - Shines soon!
