Time Flies.
XI. “Through burden and heat of the day”
By Christina G. Rossetti (1830–1894)
 
July 29

THROUGH burden and heat of the day
  How weary the hands and the feet,
That labour with scarcely a stay,
  Through burden and heat!
 
  Tired toiler whose sleep shall be sweet,        5
Kneel down, it will rest thee to pray:
  Then forward, for daylight is fleet.
 
Cool shadows show lengthening and grey,
  Cool twilight will soon be complete:—
What matters this wearisome way        10
  Through burden and heat?
