AN AUTUMN NIGHT, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Autumn night, in moonlight lying
Last Line: Peace to me for aye restore?
Subject(s): Autumn; Seasons; Fall

AUTUMN night, in moonlight lying,
Solemn, pallid, sacred night,
Thy cool lips, so softly sighing,
Summer's eyes shut with touch light.

Silver cloudlets, elfin veiling,
Follow wave of thy white hand;
Thousand wishes, never failing,
Bear they into dreams' fair land.

Peace proclaiming, peace aye bringing,
Ent'ring ev'ry little room,
Where'er anguish souls is wringing,
Bearing healing, thou dost come.

Lost in dreams, by dreams led captive,
Lean I weary at the door;
When wilt thou, night calm and pensive,
Peace to me for aye restore?
