Read IX - Let Beauty awake in the morn from beautiful dreams of Songs of Travel and other verses, free online book, by Robert Louis Stevenson, on ReadCentral.com.

Let Beauty awake in the morn from beautiful dreams,
Beauty awake from rest! 
Let Beauty awake
For Beauty’s sake
In the hour when the birds awake in the brake
And the stars are bright in the west!

Let Beauty awake in the eve from the slumber of day,
Awake in the crimson eve! 
In the day’s dusk end
When the shades ascend,
Let her wake to the kiss of a tender friend
To render again and receive!
