Selected quotations from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)

The day is done, and darkness falls from the wings of night,
the darkness falls from the wings of night.

Now the day is done, day is done, the darkness falls from the wings of night, darkness fall from the wings of night, the darkness falls from the night, wings of night.

Silently one by one, in the infinite heavens,

From wings of night, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven.

Silently, one by one in the infinite meadows of heav'n.
One by one blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels;

silently one...silently blossomed the stars, the lovely stars, forget-me-nots of the angels, of the angels.

One by one blossomed the lovely stars on the wings of night.

Silently blossomed the stars, the lovely stars, lovely stars, lovely stars on the wings, wings of night.

One by one blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels;

Silently blossomed the lovely stars, the stars, lovely stars, flow'rs of the angels; 

One by one blossomed the lovely stars, lovely stars, on the wings of night.

Silently blossomed the stars, the lovely stars, lovely stars, lovely stars on the wings, wings of night.


Day is done, day is done,

The day is done,

the darkness falls on wings of night.
