The day is done, and darkness
    From the wing of night is loosed,
As a feather is wafted downward,
    From a chicken going to roost.

I see the lights of the baker,
    Gleam through the rain and mist,
And a feeling of sadness comes o'er me,
    That I cannot well resist.

A feeling of sadness and longing
    That is not like being sick,
And resembles sorrow only
    As a brickbat resembles a brick.

Come, get for me some supper,--
    A good and regular meal--
That shall soothe this restless feeling,
    And banish the pain I feel.

Not from the pastry bakers,
    Not from the shops for cake;
I wouldn't give a farthing
    For all that they can make.

For, like the soup at dinner,
    Such things would but suggest
Some dishes more substantial,
    And to-night I want the best.

Go to some honest butcher,
    Whose beef is fresh and nice,
As any they have in the city
    And get a liberal slice.

Such things through days of labor,
    And nights devoid of ease,
For sad and desperate feelings,
    Are wonderful remedies.

They have an astonishing power
    To aid and reinforce,
And come like the "finally, brethren,"
    That follows a long discourse.

Then get me a tender sirloin
    From off the bench or hook.
And lend to its sterling goodness
    The science of the cook.

And the night shall be filled with comfort,
    And the cares with which it begun
Shall fold up their blankets like Indians,
    And silently cut and run.

                                                    Ph[oe]be Cary.
