  • If aught of oaten stop or pastoral song
    May hope, O pensive Eve, to soothe thine ear
    Like thy own solemn springs,
    Thy springs, and dying gales;

    O Nymph reserved, while now the bright-hair'd sun
    Sits in yon western tent, whose cloudy skirts,
    With brede ethereal wove,
    O'erhang his wavy bed;

    - W. Collins, 'To Evening'.
