Arthur Quiller-Couch, comp.  The Oxford Book of Victorian Verse.  1922.
 
At Night
By Alice Meynell (1847–1922)
 
HOME, home from the horizon far and clear,
        Hither the soft wings sweep;
Flocks of the memories of the day draw near
        The dovecote doors of sleep.
 
O, which are they that come through sweetest light        5
        Of all these homing birds?
Which with the straightest and the swiftest flight?
        Your words to me, your words!
