The Morn! she is the source of sighs,

The very face to make us sad; If but to think in other times The same calm quiet look she had.

Taps at the slumberer's window pane.

Break, break from the enchanter's chain,
Away, away!

To the rose just newly born.

That, ere the glorious sun be born,
By some soft touch invisible
Around his path are taught to swell.
