Night tails within the garden of the heart
With healing balm for every flower that blows
And from its dewy chalice doth impart
New perfume to the rose.
Deep iti the shadowy dells the tailing brook
Drowses its murmur. Water lilies cool
Sleep on the placid wave, while from some nook
A wood rat seeks the pool.
Startling the reeds above a sunken star
It sets a dance in black depths profound:
And through the low grass cometh from afar
The cricket’s chirping sound.
The fragrance of all blooms is bortie upon
The rise and falling of the Htful breeze;
And deep in golden blossoms of the sun
Sleep the gold-banded bees.
O magic Night that hold’s! in thy embrace
A rarer sweetness than Is born of day.
How gladly doth the eager earth her face
Turn from the sun away !
