After the dazzle of day is gone,
Only the dark, dark night shows to my eyes the stars;
After the clangor of ***** majestic, or chorus, or perfect band,
Silent, athwart my soul, moves the symphony true.
This poem was written by Walt Whitman and appeared in his major poetry collection called "Leaves of Grass" (1855, multiple revisions).
