Mercy

Richard Watson Dixon (1833–1900)
 
EARTH, 1 sad earth, thou roamest
  Through the day and night;
Weary with the darkness,
  Weary with the light.
 
Clouds of hanging judgment,        5
  And the cloud that weeps for me,
Swell above the mountain,
  Strive above the sea.
 
But, sad earth, thou knowest
  All my love for thee;        10
Therefore thou dost welcome
  The cloud that weeps for me.
 
Note 1. Dixon. Mercy, in ‘Hist. Odes’. [back]
