by Emily Brontë (1818 - 1848)

The sun has set, and the long grass now
Language: English 
 The sun has set, and the long grass now
 Waves dreamily in the evening wind; 
 And the wild bird has flown from that old gray stone 
 In some warm nook a couch to find. 

 In all the lonely landscape round 
 I see no light and hear no sound, 
 Except the wind that far away
 Come sighing o'er the healthy sea.
