Hesperus

1
Hesperus the day is gone
Soft falls the silent dew
A tear is now on many a flower
And heaven lives in you
2

Hesperus the evening mild
Falls round us soft and sweet
'Tis like the breathings of a child
When day and evening meet
3

Hesperus the closing flower
Sleeps on the dewy ground
While dews fall in a silent shower
And heaven breathes around
4

Hesperus thy twinkling ray
Beams in the blue of heaven
And tells the traveller on his way
That earth shall be forgiven
