1
    O golden Silence, bid our souls be still,
  And on the foolish fretting of our care
  Lay thy soft touch of healing unaware!
          Silence.
2
    Come, blessed Darkness, come and bring thy balm
  For eyes grown weary of the garish day!
  Come with thy soft, slow steps, thy garments gray,
Thy veiling shadows, bearing in thy palm
The poppy-seeds of slumber, deep and calm.
          Darkness.
