Original text and translations
Day is past!
Stars have set their watch at last,
Founts that thro' the deep woods flow,
Make sweet sounds, unheard till now,
Flow'rs have shut with fading light!
Good night! go to rest!
Sleep sit dovelike on thy breast,
If within thy secret cell,
One dark form of mem 'ry dwell,
Be it mantled from thy sight,
Goodnight! joy be thine!
Kind looks o'er thy slumbers shine!
Go, and in the distant land,
Meet thy home's long-parted band,
Be their looks all life and light!
Good night! Peace to all!
Dreams of heaven on mourners fall!
Exile! o'er thy couch, may gleams
Pass from thine own mountain streams.
Bard! away to worlds more bright!
