I had no Cause to be awake

I had no Cause to be awake
My Best was gone to sleep
And Morn a new politeness took
And failed to wake them up

But called the others clear
And passed their Curtains by
Sweet Morning when I oversleep
Knock Recollect to Me

I looked at Sunrise Once
And then I looked at Them
And wishfulness in me arose
For Circumstance the same

‘Twas such an Ample Peace
It could not hold a Sigh
‘Twas Sabbath with the Bells divorced
‘Twas Sunset all the Day

So choosing but a Gown
And taking but a Prayer
The only Raiment I should need
I struggled and was There
