Description
Poetry

Excerpt
Excerpt: MYSTERIOUS Night! when our first parent knew // Thee from report divine, and heard thy name, // Did he not tremble for this lovely frame, // This glorious canopy of light and blue? // Yet 'neath a curtain of translucent dew, // Bathed in the rays of the great setting flame, // Hesperus with the host of heaven came, // And lo! Creation widened in man's view. // Who could have thought such darkness lay concealed // Within thy beams, O Sun, or who could find, // Whilst fly and leaf and insect stood revealed, // That to such countless orbs thou mad'st us blind! // Why do we then shun death with anxious strife? // If Light can thus deceive, wherefore not Life?
