Will there really be a “Morning”?
Is there such a thing as “Day”?
Could I see it from the mountains If I were as tall as they?
Has it feet like Water lilies? Has it feathers like a Bird?
Is it brought from famous countries Of which I have never heard?
Oh some Scholar! Oh some Sailor! Oh some Wise Men from the skies!
Please to tell a little Pilgrim Where the place called “Morning” lies!
