11. A Parting Guest
 
WHAT delightful hosts are they— 
    Life and Love! 
Lingeringly I turn away, 
    This late hour, yet glad enough 
They have not withheld from me         5
    Their high hospitality. 
So, with face lit with delight 
    And all gratitude, I stay 
    Yet to press their hands and say, 
"Thanks.—So fine a time! Good night."  10
