TEN THE WISCONSIN MAGAZINE AFTERMATH Toll out the passing of the day! The fretted storm-clouds roll away; The sun, a baneful red on high, Lends his color to sea and sky: Then follows night of blackest dark Till, in the dawn, the early lark Calls forth the sun from eastern deep, Washed and refreshed with cleansing sleep, Lending his glory to a better day. Toll out the closing of the war! The clouds of battle lift; and sore And dead that ne'er again shall rise With life-blood stain the earth and skies: Then comes a formless night of pain And sorrow, till the light again Returns, and knee of man does bow Before the Mother of the Now, Not to the woman but the Wife Who lends her glory to our better life. -Harold B. Wieben
