The Great War

from The Poems of Robert W. Sterling, an electronic edition

The Round

CROWN of the morning

Laid on the toiler:

Joy to the heart

Hope-rich.

Treasure behind left;

Riches before him,

Treasur'd in toil,

To glean.

Starlit and hushful

Wearily homeward:

Rest to the brow

Toil-stain'd.
