A Wink from Hesper by William Ernest Henley

William Ernest Henley

A wink from Hesper, falling
Fast in the wintry sky,
Comes through the even blue,
Dear, like a word from you…
Is it good-bye?

Across the miles between us
I send you sigh for sigh.
Good-Night, sweet friend, good-night:
Till life and all take flight,
Never good-bye

Poet: William Ernest Henley
English
1849 – 1903
