Subject(s): England; Landscape; Stars; English

A BELL softer than silence,
A tear happier than mirth,
They meet me in the fields
And charm me from this earth --

This earth now in its twilight,
And calm Autumn abroad,
The mothering fields at rest,
In the praise of their lingering God.

His light kindly infolding
The still, giant domains,
Glows on in me until
I seek -- what sunset plains?

The star falls in enchantment
Adown infinite blue,
And fades from its white fire
To live in rapture new.
