    Jane Kenyon's poem 'Let Evening Come' was featured in the film 'In Her Shoes', in a scene where the character [played by Cameron Diaz] reads the poem (as well as 'One Art' by Elizabeth Bishop) to a blind nursing home resident. (Report) Reply

    Let Evening Come

    Let the light of late afternoon
    shine through chinks in the barn, moving
    up the bales as the sun moves down.

    - ITALIAN:

    Lascia che venga la sera

    Lascia che la luce del tardo pomeriggio
    splenda attraverso le fessure nella stalla, muovendosi
    in alto sulle balle di fieno all'abbassarsi del sole. (Report) Reply

    Let it come, as it will, and don't
    be afraid. God does not leave us
    comfortless.............inspiring write of strong conviction of faith in God... (Report) Reply
