  1. A wind came up out of the sea,
    And said: "O mists, make room for me!"

    It hailed the ships, and cried: "Sail on,
    Ye mariners, the night is gone."

    And hurried landward far away,
    Crying: "Awake! it is the day.”

    It said unto the forest : " Shout!
    Hang all your leafy banners out!

    It touched the wood-bird's folded wing,
    And said : " O bird, awake and sing !"

    It whispered to the fields of corn :
    "Bow down, and hail the coming morn!"

    It shouted through the belfry tower:
    "Awake, O bell! proclaim the hour."

    - Henry W. Longfellow
