A Summer Evening Churchyard, Lechlade, Gloucestershire

Rating: 2.8
THE wind has swept from the wide atmosphere
Each vapour that obscured the sunset's ray,
And pallid Evening twines its beaming hair
In duskier braids around the languid eyes of Day:
Silence and Twilight, unbeloved of men,
Creep hand in hand from yon obscurest glen.

They breathe their spells towards the departing day,
Encompassing the earth, air, stars, and sea;
Light, sound, and motion, own the potent sway,
Responding to the charm with its own mystery.

" Responding to the charm with it's own mystery" . This is applicable here in respect of superb narration style.

Sweet secrets, or beside its breathless sleep That loveliest dreams perpetual watch did keep.
