Night settles over, like a vaporous gloom

Envelopes my soul, in a darkening tomb

Looking ahead, I seek out the light

The only one promising, to bring me through night

Skies part the way, not a moment too soon

All at once I am swallowed, by a heavenly moon

As day comes to an end, and the sun bids adieu

The eventide wraps me, in its ebony hue
