    Relinquishing the blissful form it wore,
    The ample joy and clarity expire.

Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey Poem
June Night In Washington
 by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey

Drugging the twilight
With its sweet opiate of lovers' dreams!
The last red glow of the setting sun
On the red brick wall
Of the neighboring house,
And the scramble of red roses over it!
