Soft days whose silver moments keep
The constant promise of tho morn,
When tired equinoctials sleep
And wintry winds nro yot unborn:
"What ono of all the twelve more dear
Thou truce and Sabbath of the year?
Morn restful art thou than tho May,
And If less hope be in thy hand.
Some cares 'twere grief to understand
Thou hast, as Is the mother's way.
With mists and lights of fairyland
Set on the borders of tho day.
And best of all thou dost beguile
With color friendliest thought of God!
Than thine hath heaven Itself a smile
More rich? Are feet of angels shod
With peace more fair? O. month divine.
Stay! till thy tranquil soul be mine.
