  Till To-Morrow  

 

Long have I longed, till I am tired
        Of longing and desire;
Farewell my points in vain desired,
                My dying fire;
Farewell all things that die and fail and tire.

Springtide and youth and useless pleasure
        And all my useless scheming,
My hopes of unattainable treasure,
                Dreams not worth dreaming,
Glow-worms that gleam but yield no warmth in gleaming,

Farewell all shows that fade in showing:
        My wish and joy stand over
Until to-morrow; Heaven is glowing
                Through cloudy cover,
Beyond all clouds loves me my Heavenly Lover.

       - Christina G. Rossetti
