The midnight moon serenely smiles
O'er nature's soft repose,
No low'ring cloud obscures the sky,
Nor ruffling tempest blows.

Now every passion sinks to rest,
The throbbing heart lies still;
The varying schemes of life no more
Distract the labouring will.

In silence hush'd, to reason's voice
Attends each mental power;
Come, dear Emilia, and enjoy
Reflection's favourite hour.
