Good Night! Which put the Candle out?

Good Night! Which put the Candle out?
A jealous Zephyr not a doubt
Ah, friend, you little knew
How long at that celestial wick
The Angels labored diligent
Extinguished now for you!

It might have been the Light House spark
Some Sailor rowing in the Dark
Had importuned to see!
It might have been the waning lamp
That lit the Drummer from the Camp
To purer Reveille!
