The good, the beauty. I dream and
There comes tomorrow and then to
morrow, and yet tomorrow,
And I'm a man.
By the clilfs whence the waves their
gray gloom borrow.
The sweetest of sweet-i oiced echoes
And murmured: Tomorrow, Tomorrow,

Soundng long after and dying away
The swift years pass and hi life is
He's faithful still to his dream of,
Tomorrow! Tomorrow Is mine, he

Tho sweetest of sweet voiced echoes
Was there a sound of shocking laugh

Tho. swift jears speed and the light is
His dim eyes turn to the misty -west.
His dream is passed end he stands
Earth's wearied, dejected, disheart

The sweetest of sweet voiced echos
And murmured: Tomorrow-, Tomorrow,
Was there sound as of tender sadness.
