In the evening by the moonlight / When my mother had finished working / We used to sit around the fire place / Till the cornbread it was done / And then we all would eat our supper / After that we'd clean the kitchen / It's the only time they ever gave us to spare / To have a little fun / Then my daddy used to take his fiddle down / That hung upon the wall / While the silvery moon was shining clear and bright / How the folks would enjoy it / They would sit all night and listen / As we used to sing in the evening by the moonlight.     

James Bland and Bernice Manoloff

Evening! as slow thy placid shades descend, / Veiling with gentlest hush the landscape still, / The lonely battlement, the farthest hill / And wood, I think of those who have no friend; / Who now, perhaps, by melancholy led, / From the broad blaze of day, where pleasure flaunts, / Retiring, wander to the ring-dove’s haunts / Unseen; and watch the tints that o’er thy bed / Hang lovely; oft to musing Fancy’s eye / Presenting fairy vales, where the tir’d mind / Might rest beyond the murmurs of mankind, / Nor hear the hourly moans of misery! / Alas for man! that Hope’s fair views the while / Should smile like you, and perish as they smile!     

William Lisle Bowles

The sky puts on the darkening blue coat / held for it by a row of ancient trees; / you watch: and the lands grow distant in your sight, / one journeying to heaven, one that falls.
