Night

Rating: 3.1

The sun descending in the west,
The evening star does shine;
The birds are silent in their nest,
And I must seek for mine.
The moon, like a flower,
In heaven's high bower,
With silent delight
Sits and smiles on the night.

Farewell, green fields and happy groves,

Where flocks have took delight.

The poet begins this poem by describing some night features. Then he tells how the angel, in route, blesses and secures human, animals, nature and—all—for the night. A peaceful poem of comfort and security. William Blake’s work is among the best. Truly an incredible poet. I simply love his work and will be reading more.
