Invocation to Youth

Laurence Binyon.
1869 – 1943

COME then, as ever, like the wind at morning!

  Joyous, O Youth, in the agèd world renew

Freshness to feel the eternities around it,

  Rain, stars and clouds, light and the sacred dew.

      The strong sun shines above thee:

      That strength, that radiance bring!

      If Winter come to Winter,

      When shall men hope for Spring?
