1654. A Song of Arno
 
By Grace Ellery Channing-Stetson
 
 
IT is the hour when Arno turns
  Her gold to chrysoprase;
When each low-hanging star outburns
  Its faint, mysterious rays,
As from the prison of faery urns        5
  Which faery hands upraise.
 
It is the hour when life’s constraint
  A moment’s ease is given;
When Earth is like a holy saint,
  Stilled, sanctified, and shriven,        10
And the deep-breathing heart grows faint
  To be so near to Heaven.
