Night
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
(See full text.)

            COME, seeling night,
Skarf up the tender eye of pitiful day,
And, with thy bloody and invisible hand,
Cancel, and tear to pieces, that great bond
Which keeps me pale!—Light thickens; and the crow        5
Makes wing to the rooky wood.
