Evening Rain

by John Vance Cheney

John Vance Cheney

Twilight down the west

Wanders once again;

With a gentler guest

Singing in her train.

Hearkens every breast,

Every heart and brain:

Peace, oh, peace is best!

Runs the sweet refrain.

So the world is blest,

Joy is not nor pain;

Love itself learns rest

Of the summer rain.
