Morning Song

A Quote by Conrad Aiken on conrad aiken, morning song, and senlin

It is morning. I stand by my mirror
And tie my tie once more.
While waves far off in a pale rose twilight
Crash on a white sand shore.
I stand by a mirror and comb my hair:
How small and white my face!—
The green earth tilts through a sphere of air
And bathes in a flame of space.
There are houses hanging above the stars
And stars hung under a sea...
And a sun far off in a shell of silence
Dapples my walls for me....

Conrad Aiken (1889 - 1973)
