The early gray
Taps at the slumberer's window pane.
And seems to say,
Break, break from the enchanter's chain,
Away, away!

Its love-song to the morn;
I've seen the dew-drop clinging
To the rose just newly born.

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

And through the opening door that time unlocks
Feel the fresh breathing of To-morrow creep.

Dropt from the opening eyelids of the morn
Upon the bashful rose.
