To Night
By Louise Chandler Moulton (1835–1908)
 
BEND low, O dusky Night,
  And give my spirit rest.
  Hold me to your deep breast,
And put old cares to flight.
Give back the lost delight        5
  That once my soul possest,
  When Love was loveliest.
Bend low, O dusky Night!
 
Enfold me in your arms—
  The sole embrace I crave        10
  Until the embracing grave
Shield me from life’s alarms.
I dare your subtlest charms;
  Your deepest spell I brave.
  O, strong to slay or save,        15
Enfold me in your arms!
