William Collins (poet)
The only sound that the speaker listens is that of the cry of the bat and the beetle. He aspires to go to the ruined building in some lonely valley to watch the beauty of the evening, but he is disturbed by the rain and the wind. So, he decides to visit the mountainside to see the descending evening.
In the end, the speaker admits that the charm of the evening should continue to bring peace and harmony and to inspire friendship, poets, science and lovers of the peace.
The application of the femininity in describing the evening and characterizing her is one of the strengths of Collins. These traits to the evening adds the concept of an eye-catching woman who is reserved and patient. The poet has used the concept of the evening as a way to put his view on the woman as contradictory figure, something mysterious and also generous.
The evening is merging point of the sunlight and the sunset, in a way, it is a transition from light to dark, day to night.
