July 29

THROUGH burden and heat of the day
   How weary the hands and the feet,
That labor with scarcely a stay,
   Through burden and heat!

   Tired toiler whose sleep shall be sweet,
Kneel down, it will rest thee to pray:
   Then forward, for daylight is fleet.

Cool shadows grow lengthening and gray,
   Cool twilight will soon be complete:--
What matters this wearisome way
   Through burden and heat?
