Evening, Op. 35, no. 5


"Evening" is a song of Margaret Ruthven Lang which sets the text of Harriet Fairchild Blodgett.

by Harriett Fairchild Blodgett

The shadows furl their wings to rest,
As, through the curtains of the west,
The Evening cometh with a star
To light her from the worlds afar,
And says, her gray eyes filled with dew:
"Dear child, I have sweet dreams for you!
Sweet dreams, dear child, for you!"
