The hour when dark enfolds the night is mine
You may have all the others, this I ask
When shades may softly blend a new design
And come upon the scene with twilight's masque.
How quiet waters ride when meadows flood
To spread their carven ripples, willow blest
Where even shadows pause before they scud
And run to meet the dusk with frightened zest.

I love the hour when darkness holds the light
With cooling hands that may be harsh or kind
Then tenders all the earth a calm Good-Night.
That space is mine and more as years unwind
The hour when children's words are formed in prayer
And listeners are silent and aware.
