1081. My Comrade
 
By Edwin Markham
 
 
I NEVER build a song by night or day,
  Of breaking ocean or of blowing whin,
But in some wondrous unexpected way,
  Like light upon a road, my Love comes in.
 
And when I go at night upon the hill,        5
  My heart is lifted on mysterious wings:
My Love is there to strengthen and to still,
  For she can take away the dread of things.
