The giant 1).tv’s wit bin l lie west
Engaged in battle tierce with n.igi>! l

Break through the phahtuxes of light
The plant world weeps with drooping iieads;
The west is g>>rv from the tight ;
The earth stands egging waning daV;'

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 night with stars : the moon beam’s glow,
For dark, the shadows, earth, hushed still
The. owl s com plai nt, t he cricket’s t a le,.
The lonely moaning whipporwill.
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.
