The Dewdrop slips into the shining sea!
Gem of earth and sky begotten.
Every dew-drop and rain-drop had a whole heaven within it.
Dewdrops, Nature's tears, which she
Sheds in her own breast for the fair which die.
The sun insists on gladness; but at night,
When he is gone, poor Nature loves to weep.
Dew-drops are the gems of morning,
But the tears of mournful eve!
Or stars of morning, dew-drops which the sun
Impearls on every leaf and every flower.
The dews of the evening most carefully shun;
Those tears of the sky for the loss of the sun.
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.
And every dew-drop paints a bow.
'Tis of the tears which stars weep, sweet with joy.
