    Well they have done their office, those bright hours,
    The latest of whose train goes softly out
    In the red west.

She bids you on the wanton rushes lay you down
And rest your gentle head upon her lap,

As is the difference betwixt day and night
The hour before the heavenly-harnessed team
Begins his golden progress in the east.

Softened to shadows, silvery, pale, and dim,
As if the very Day paused and grew Eve.

The orange flower perfumes the bower,
The breeze is on the sea.

. . . th' approach of night
The skies yet blushing with departing light,
When falling dews with spangles deck'd the glade,
And the low sun had lengthen'd ev'ry shade.
