An Eclipse


In anticipation of the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, we offer this poem from The Fairy Changeling and Other Poems (1897).
An Eclipse
Sancho Panza, Eclipse Anular, 2005
Let there be an end
And all be done;
Pass over, fair eclipse,
That hides the sun.

Dear face that shades the light
And shadows me,
Begone, and give me peace,
And set me free.
