The Evening Darkens over

Original Text: 
Poetical Works of Robert Bridges with The Testament of Beauty but excluding the eight drama, 2nd edn. (London: Geoffrey Cumberlege, Oxford University Press, 1953): 279-80.
1The evening darkens over
2After a day so bright
3The windcapt waves discover
4That wild will be the night.
5There's sound of distant thunder.
6The latest sea-birds hover
7Along the cliff's sheer height;
8As in the memory wander
9Last flutterings of delight,
10White wings lost on the white.
11There's not a ship in sight;
12And as the sun goes under
13Thick clouds conspire to cover
14The moon that should rise yonder.
15Thou art alone, fond lover.
