O Night, more pleasing than the brightest day,
When fancy gives what absence takes away,
And drest in all its visionary charms,
Restores my fair deserter to my arms;

But when with day the sweet delusions fly,
And all things wake to life and joy; but I,
As if once more forsaken, I complain,
And close my eyes to dream of you again.
