Original Text: 
Thomas Carlyle, Critical and Miscellaneous Essays, I (London: Chapman and Hall, 1872): 292-93.
1So here hath been dawning
2Another blue Day:
3Think wilt thou let it
4Slip useless away.
5Out of Eternity
6This new Day is born;
7Into Eternity,
8At night, will return.
9Behold it aforetime
10No eye ever did:
11So soon it forever
12From all eyes is hid.
13Here hath been dawning
14Another blue Day:
15Think wilt thou let it
16Slip useless away.
