John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7996
AUTHOR:Robert Seymour Bridges (1844–1930)
QUOTATION:Behind the western bars
The shrouded day retreats,
And unperceived the stars
Steal to their sovran seats.


And whiter grows the foam,
The small moon lightens more;
And as I turn me home,
My shadow walks before.
ATTRIBUTION:The Clouds have left the Sky.
