A SUMMER NIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Her soft, cool arms extending, / night comes anew
Last Line: With it might go!
Subject(s): Night; Summer; Bedtime

HER soft, cool arms extending,
Night comes anew;
Fields, woods, and meadows clasping
Her heart unto;

With mantle light enwrapping
Each tree and bush,
While murmuring tones the world
To dreams doth hush.

The earth hath now forgotten
Day's misery;
Mine eyes I lift in longing
Toward the sky.

I see a wee bird soaring
In sunset's glow:
Ah, would my heart, so weary,
With it might go!
