Ever serene and fair,
And there is another sunshine,

Whose leaf is ever green;
Here is a brighter garden,
Where not a frost has been;
In its unfading flowers
I hear the bright bee hum;

And handled with a Chain –

To love thee Year by Year –
May less appear

I asked no other thing –
No other – was denied –
I offered Being – for it –
The Mighty Merchant sneered –

Though sunset lie between –
Nor that adjacent, that beside,
Is further than the sun.

It struck me – every Day –
The lightning was as new
As if the Cloud that instant slit
And let the Fire through –

It burned Me – in the Night –
It Blistered to My Dream –
It sickened fresh upon my sight –
With every Morn that came –

I thought that Storm – was brief –
The Maddest – quickest by –
But Nature lost the Date of This –
And left it in the Sky –
