Wait for the Morning by James Whitcomb Riley (7th October, 1849 – 22nd July, 1916)

Wait for the morning:–It will come, indeed,
As surely as the night hath given need.
The yearning eyes, at last, will strain their sight
No more unanswered by the morning light;
No longer will they vainly strive, through tears,
To pierce the darkness of thy doubts and fears,
But, bathed in balmy dews and rays of dawn,
Will smile with rapture o’er the darkness drawn.

Wait for the morning, O thou smitten child,
Scorned, scourged and persecuted and reviled–
Athirst and famishing, none pitying thee,
Crowned with the twisted thorns of agony–
No faintest gleam of sunlight through the dense
Infinity of gloom to lead thee thence–
Wait for the morning:–It will come, indeed,
As surely as the night hath given need.

At the Window by Hans Olaf Heyerdahl (8th July, 1857 – 10th October, 1913)
