Rating: 4.6

Let the light of late afternoon

up the bales as the sun moves down.

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.

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.
