It Tolls for Thee

One!
O man, take care!
Two!
What does the deep midnight declare?
Three!
“I was asleep
Four!
“From a deep dream I woke and swear:

Five!
“The world is deep,
Six!
“Deeper than day had been aware.
Seven!
“Deep is its woe;
Eight!
“Joy–deeper yet than agony:
Nine!
“Woe implores: Go!
Ten!
“But all joy wants eternity-
Eleven!
“Wants deep, wants deep eternity.”
Twelve!
