Excerpt from As They Came to Me
Hey come to me in hush of night, Come in the rosy glow of morn, Come when the world is glad and bright In purple haze of twilight born, On mountain top, in woodland shade Or deserts stretching far away, Where rivers roll through meadowed glade, From waving fields with blossoms gay, And whisper, Write!
They come where swelling oceans wide Speed on the ship with quivering sail When crested billows gaily ride Sending some message on the gale To me they come where cities' glare Is turning somber night to day, Where wrestled sorrow with despair.
