THE twilight came to soothe my furrowed care,
The night to ease the edge of pallid pain,
And sleep to quiet all the woes mundane,
Then silken dreams, lest sleep should be too bare,
Folded their films around me, rich and rare;
Thus lay I, marveling in their silver skein
Of phantasy, till night was on the wane
And dawn peered in, disfigured by despair,
Calling me back to care's calm slavery,
Whetting the sword of pain, mine ancient foe,
Rousing again his friend, relentless woe;
O demon Dawn! what devil dwells in thee,
That thou shouldst enter here so fiendishly,
And shatter all the happiness I know?
