    William Blake "Night"

    by
         “Night” The sun descending in the west,
    The evening star does shine;
    The birds are silent in their nest,
    And I must seek for mine.
    The moon, like a flower,
    In heaven’s high bower,
    With silent delight
    Sits and smiles on the night.

    Farewell, green fields and happy
