‘WINGS OF NIGHT’

When droop the wings of Night across my soul,

How will it go, with thee, O Soul,

What wilt thou treasure most,

What, more than all,

Within thy dearest love enfold?

Will voice of falling waters

Charm thee most,

Or memory of bird’s glad song,

or form and fragrance of the fairest flowers

Hold thee within the subtlest thrall,

*

When droop the wings of Night across thee, soul,

And shades eternal o’er thy pathway fall?

When droop the wings of Night across thee, soul,

How will it go, How with thee, O Soul?

*

Will laughter in the eyes of thy beloved

Lighten the darkness that befalls,

Stem best the gloom’s encircling flow,

Or memory of sunsets framed in gold,

And woven with the colours of the rose

Thee most console;

Or aureoled dawns

Thou dids’t in joy, behold,

The lovelier, fairer far,

Since now thy sun sinks low?

When droop the wings of night across thee, Soul?

How will it go? How with thee, O Soul,

The clouds of the Abyss,

Already chill, against thee rolled,

Thy youth’s strength failed,

Thy hold, thine ardent hold

On life, grown faint, thy body old?

*

Replied the Soul:

‘All things I loved will with me go,

The River of the Beautiful will by me flow,

Reflecting Harmony and Joy,

The Hills of Truth their outline,

‘Gainst the boundless sky, will roll.

And Love, across Death’s frontiers,

Love with me, will go, the Angel of Eternity,

So, when droop the wings of Night across my soul,

No fears shall me assail,

For Love, the Deathless, Love will with me go,

For life’s sole origin, my guide, mine all.’
