lyrics

Emily Brontë
All day I've toiled

All day I've toiled but not with pain
In learning's golden mine
And now at eventide again
The moonbeams softly shine.

There is no snow upon the ground
No frost on wind or wave
The south wind blew with gentlest sound
And broke their icy grave.

Tis sweet to wander here at night
To watch the winter die
With heart as summer sunshine light
And warm as summer's sky.

O may I never lose the peace
That lulls me gently now
Though time may change my youthful face
And years may shade my brow.

True to myself and true to all
May I be healthful still
And turn away from passion's call
And curb my own wild will.
