Break through the phahtuxes of light

For night when daily toils are o’er;
For night of peace repose and rest.
For night to muse and meditate.
To plan alone—ah! that is best.

For dark, the shadows, earth, hushed still

For night.with sleep; for sleep 1 /. itb dreams.
That waft us to some foreign shore.
Where we behold . again embrace
One from the world reft evermore.
