The embers of the day are red beyond the murky hill. The kitchen smokers; the bed In the darkling house is spread: The great sky darkens overhead, And the great woods are shrill. So far I have been led, Lord, by thy will: So far I have followed, Lord, and wondered still. The breeze from the embalmed land Blows sudden towards the shore, And claps my cottage door. I hear the signal, Lord – I understand. The night at Thy command Comes. I will eat and sleep and will not question more.
