past fairyland

no mystery nor reason for the day

to start so simply since the bright alarm

brought us to wakefulness with simple charm

while this last warden had now news to say

but that there were some causes for delay

and none for haste but we are past all harm

of foolish words nor may the time disarm

our urgent thoughts we must be on our way

onward to where the final tolling bell

cannot be heard and then so far beyond

that on our senses we cannot depend

who will not know if any live to tell

the meaning and the substance of our bond

or who will care that any reach the end
