PAUL HAMILTON HAYNE
American poet
(1831 - 1886)

Dewy evening's soft and sacred lull.
      - [Evening]

Low gurgling laughter, as sweet
  As the swallow's song i' the South,
    And a ripple of dimples that, dancing, meet
      By the curves of a perfect mouth.
      - Ariel [Laughter]

And Potomac flowed calmly, scarce heaving her breast,
  With her low-lying billows all bright in the west,
    For a charm as from God lulled the waters to rest
      Of the fair rolling river.
      - Beyond the Potomac [Potomac River]

Happy the heart that keeps its twilight hour,
  And, in the depths of heavenly peace reclined,
    Loves to commune with thoughts of tender power,--
      A shining Jacob's-ladder of the mind!
      - Sonnet IX [Meditation]

Where drooping lotos-flowers, distilling balm,
  Dream by the drowsy streamlets sleep hath crown'd,
    While Care forgets to sigh, and Peace hath balsamed Pain.
      - Sonnet--Pent in the Common Sphere
        [Lotuses]

Lo! there he lies, our Patriarch Poet, dead!
  The solemn angel of eternal peace
    Has waved a wand of mystery o'er his head,
      Touched his strong heart, and bade his pulses cease.
      - To Bryant, Dead [Poets]

Let the only walls the foe shall scale
  Be ramparts of the dead!
      - Vicksburg [War]
