Night Eyes

it is addressed thusly:
A vision.
it reads:
It may be easier to arise
In morning than do now
What must for now be done.

The body is forgetting
And the soul is slow learning
And the will is midnight snack.

Leaning on our left foot
And rubbing our chin
Is short-waiting and long doing.

So when at last we call
And sleep no longer answers
We see night with night eyes.
