Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882).  Complete Poetical Works.  1893.
 
In the Harbor
A Fragment
 
AWAKE! arise! the hour is late!
  Angels are knocking at thy door!
They are in haste and cannot wait,
  And once departed come no more.
 
Awake! arise! the athlete’s arm        5
  Loses its strength by too much rest;
The fallow land, the untilled farm
  Produces only weeds at best.
