Excerpt

The sun is a reagent, the sun is an accomplice,
The sun is a party of the third part.
How cold ingredients before the sunrise,
How still the seeds at heart!

We have a haystack and a doorstep whitening,
We have a shutter splintering finer,
And surer signs of fruit more warmly brightening
With the sun co-signer.

How quick the compound now that it is daybreak,
How firm the bargain with this light to light it!
Now we have both experiment to make,
And words to write it.
