Subject(s): Hands; Nuns; Prayer


FOLD your pale hands, O night,
Pure nun who comes to pray
For the departing day—
Fold your pale hands.

Tell o'er your beads—
Dewdrops that where you pass
Cluster upon the grass,
Tell o'er your beads.

Light your clear stars,
Tapers whose holy fire
Burns with a soul's desire—
Light your clear stars.
