In the poor little dwelling of Sandy one night,
It was not the candles all shining around, --
Ah, no! 't was the light of the day he had found.
"Sandy Macleod" by Alice Cary

And the moon and the willow-wooed waters around,
Might have known that we rested, my Annie and I,
In happiness calm as the slumber of sound.

The winds spoke softly;
From pale clouds drifting before the moon
Called spirits lofty;
In all creation a loving heart beat,
My own reflection in all did I meet.

Right to the sunset-bars, yet never found him.
Backward along the edge of night returning

All in the early morning, boys, before the sun was high;
The seagulls they were crying and calling all around,
And the moon hung white and pale in the pure blue April sky.

And summer clouds distil around their most refreshing showers,
And when the daily sun withdraws his golden tent above,
May moon and stars look watchful down and bless thee with their love.
