Cool and crisp eve lighted by exposed stars
A nearly full moon, a quiet that's ours
Through dark bare limbs of silhouetted oak
Moments thinking of our time to part
Will the hands of midnight soon stroke
And one of us wear the mourning cloak?
Alas, my love let's together depart
To the Son lit city by His call evoke
Our night love flowing from an open heart
Let's enter our night that work of love's art
Come into the twilight let's slowly walk
Into night's dwelling never to depart
