Now thou art risen, and thy day begun.
How shrink the shrouding mists before thy face,
As up thou spring’st to thy diurnal race!
How darkness chases darkness to the west,
As shades of light on light rise radiant from thy crest!
For thee, great source of strength, emblem of might,
Eggs and bacon, a toasted bagel, oatmeal, yogurt, or a quick coffee on the way to work: Browse our selection of poems about the first meal of the day—breakfast.
