I. SECLUDED, solitary on some underbough, Or cradled in a leaf, ’mid glimmering light, Like Puck thou crouchest: haply watching how The slow toadstool comes bulging, moony white, Through loosening loam; or how, against the night, The glowworm gathers silver to endow The darkness with; or how the dew conspires To hang at dusk with lamps of chilly fires Each blade that shrivels now.Madison Cawein [1865-1914]
II. O vague confederate of the whippoorwill, Of owl and cricket and the katydid! Thou gatherest up the silence in one shrill Vibrating note and send’st it where, half hid In cedars, twilight sleepseach azure lid Drooping a line of golden eyeball still. Afar, yet near, I hear thy dewy voice Within the Garden of the Hours a-poise On dusk’s deep daffodil.
