James Whitcomb Riley - 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 
   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."
