Book cover
By: (1834-1896)

volunteers bring you 16 recordings of "Summer Dawn" by William Morris.
This was the Weekly Poetry project for July 10, 2022.
------
When this poem was first published in 1856 it had no title. Subsequently, the 1858 edition gave the sonnet its title of "Summer Dawn." And it is a sonnet, though it does not follow traditional English or Italian models. Perhaps Morris was giving hint of the Proven├žal 'alba.' These poems in their early form were conversations between two lovers. The requirement is that each stanza end with the word 'alba' [dawn]. Morris ends lines five and eleven this way. - Summary by KevinS
