N.A. "When the last sunshine of expiring day/ In summer's twilight weeps itself away,/ Who hath not felt the softness of the hour/ Sink on the heart, as dew along the flower*/ With a pure feeling which absords and awes/ While nature makes that melancholy pause,/ Her breathing moment on the bridge where Time/ Of light and darkness forms an arch sublime;/ Who hath not shared that calm so still and deep,/ The voiceless thought which would not sleep but weep;/ A holy concord--a bright regret,/ A glorious sympathy with suns that set*"--Byron. [P. 6.] N.A. [P. 19.]
