time is conquered...

File:Edward Rowland Sill.jpgThis a poem from Edward Rowland Sill, collected in the volume, "The Poets of Transcendentalism"

Forenoon and afternoon and night, —Forenoon,
And afternoon, and night, — Forenoon, and —
The empty song repeats itself. No more?
Yes, that is Life: make this forenoon sublime,
This afternoon a psalm, this night a prayer,
And Time is conquered, and thy crown is won."
