THE hours of the day have departed,
They folded their wings to rest,
When the last red ray of sun-light
Faded away in the west,
And fleecy clouds cover the stars,
And beyond is a world of blue,
And my soul awakes from a slumber
To-night, and I see right through--
Away to a world of azure,
Where white-winged spirits meet,
While the clouds float and fade below them,
And the stars shine at their feet.
They hold out their hands in welcome,
And now, for a moment of time,
Limitless worlds and boundless space,
And planets--they all are mine.
