Vols. IX–XI: Literature of the Republic, Part IV., 1861–1889
 
Evensong
By John Vance Cheney (1848–1922)
 
IT is that pale, delaying hour
When Nature closes like a flower,
And on the spirit hallowed lies
The silence of the earth and skies.
 
The world has thoughts she will not own        5
When shades and dreams with night have flown;
Bright overhead, the early star
Makes golden guesses what they are.
