Mauve dusk enshrouds the saffron west;
(I watch—alone.)
Soon fades the light from yon hill crest,
(My prayers atone!)

The nighthawk cleaves the darkling sky;
(My Love—come home!)
His flight evades my questing eye.
(Must you still roam?)

Now blinks the sky with faint star-shine;
(Why did we part?)
Vouchsafe to me the Roman's sign.
(Chill grows my heart.)

The nighthawk calls loud to his mate;
(I call you—Dear.)
I listen for the voice of Fate. ...
(Do you not hear?)

Song omens answer from a-far;
(Joy wings above.)
Two swift shapes spiral toward a star.
(So comes my Love.)
