HUSH OF TWILIGHT, by                
First Line: After the sun goes down
Last Line: All destiny is cast.
Subject(s): Day; Evening; Light; Night; Sunset; Twilight; Bedtime

After the sun goes down,
Before the pall of night
Can settle over the town,
There is a peaceful light.

When the day is dying
We scarcely hear its breath,
And yet there is a sighing
Before the hour of death.

Though night is always born
With each departing day,
It, too, at break of morn
Will pass upon its way.

Quietness of the twilight,
Praise for the day that's past,
While out beyond the starlight,
All destiny is cast.
