Songs of the Sea Children

by Bliss Carman


 

XXXVI


 

The sun is lord of a manor fair, 
And the earth his garden old, 
Whose dewy beds where he walks at morn 
Flower by flower unfold.

When he goes at night and leaves the stars 

5
Lit in the trees to shine, 
Blossom by blossom the flowerheads sleep—
And a rosy head by mine.
