After-Song

Richard Watson Gilder was an American poet and editor.






THROUGH love to light! Oh wonderful the way
That leads from darkness to the perfect day!
From darkness and from sorrow of the night
To morning that comes singing o’er the sea.
Through love to light! Through light, O God, to thee,
Who art the love of love, the eternal light of light!
