The Day's Prologue

by Patience Worth

Patience Worth

Let me announce prologue
Before that great sable curtain, Eternity!
At its base bum seven thousand suns.
About its arch the stars hang; before its face
Floats the music of the spheres.
An instant man passeth, clothed in motley,
With a pack of tricks, laughs, weeps,
Gives utterance to a few short words-
And behold-the curtain riseth!
