SECOND EVENING, by            
First Line: Exists there one, who carelessly can view
Last Line: And leaves this little world and all its cares behind.
Alternate Author Name(s): Moncrieff, Mary F. Johnson


Exists there one, who carelessly can view
The vivid glory of the sun's last gleams
On the green wave reflect a vermeil hue,
And upward cast pale heat-portending beams?
When the white cliff receives the ruddy glow,
And splendid flushes smooth its craggy side;
When the glazed windows of the warship throw
A sparkling radiance o'er the crimsoned tide;
When rising Venus sheds her light of love,
Fresh from the main, as erst the Goddess rose;
When in his circuit shines the belted Jove,
And further orbs their twinkling sparks disclose:
Then lightly soars the meditative mind,
And leaves this little world and all its cares behind.
