"The Evening Star" By: henry wadsworth longfellow

Summary

The Speaker is talking about a painted bay window of the West. Like the sun's color. He is saying like the lady is shinning when she is in the window. The evening star is the star of love and rest.

The speaker is saying that all her clothes are radiant. Also saying behind the dark screen of the far away trees. With sleep and sweet dreams of love.

His sweet evening star like venus.

My morning and evening star of love.

My best and gentalist lady. She is fair as the planet above. When it is night you rest. When it is night time there is barley light.
