Henry Newbolt, Poems: New and Old (London: John Murray, 1912): 165. PR 5103.N4A17 Robarts Library
1To Youth there comes a whisper out of the west:
2 "O loiterer, hasten where there waits for thee
3A life to build, a love therein to nest,
4 And a man's work, serving the age to be."
5Peace, peace awhile! Before his tireless feet
6 Hill beyond hill the road in sunlight goes;
7He breathes the breath of morning, clear and sweet,
8 And his eyes love the high eternal snows.
