An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
At Last the Daylight Fadeth
By Emanuel Geibel (1815–1884)
 
Translation of Frances Hellman

AT last the daylight fadeth,
  With all its noise and glare;
Refreshing peace pervadeth
  The darkness everywhere.
 
On the fields deep silence hovers;        5
  The woods now wake alone;
What daylight ne’er discovers,
  Their songs to the night make known.
 
And what when the sun is shining
  I ne’er can tell to thee,        10
To whisper it now I am pining,—
  Oh, come and hearken to me!
