The Dread Voyage Poems

by William Wilfred Campbell




LOVE came at dawn when all the world was fair,
      When crimson glories, bloom, and song were rife;
Love came at dawn when hope’s wings fanned the air,
      And murmured, “I am life.”

Love came at even when the day was done,

      When heart and brain were tired, and slumber pressed;
Love came at eve, shut out the sinking sun,
      And whispered, “I am rest.”
