From To Morning

William Blake (1757–1827)
LO 1 where the Virgin veiléd in airy beams,
All-holy Morn, in splendor awakening,
  Heav’ns gate hath unbarrèd, the golden
    Aerial lattices set open.
With music endeth night’s prisoning terror,        5
With flow’ry incense: Haste to salute the sun,
  That for the day’s chase, like a huntsman,
    With flashing arms cometh o’er the mountain.
Note 1. This is Blake’s lines To Morning in ‘Poetical Sketches’ done into quantitive Alcaics for the chorus in ‘Demeter’ by R. Bridges. [back]
