Not with drums
Light comes.
It knocks
Upon no door;
From no dim pane
It stirs the dust
Or sweeps the skein
That is the spider's airy fane.
It turns no locks.
It has no language to implore
The just,
No thunder to awake
The sluggard and the rake.
It wields no instruments of doom
To raise the sombre siege of gloom;
It spins no strategems with mirth.
But to the wide, clear-windowed room
It is rebirth.
