TWILIGHT.

Someone has lit the lamp, and hung
The house with curtains of cool blue,
Someone (I cannot tell you who)
Has put bright candles all among
Our empty rooms. Since we are young
For keeping house, and only two,
Someone has lit the lamp, and hung
The house with curtains of cool blue.
Our lamp, the moon so deftly swung
Aloft; the stars our candles new;
Our housekeeper? I have no clue
I only know what I have sung—
Someone has lit the lamp, and hung
The house with curtains of cool blue.
