The Phantom Lady

"The most beautiful, the purest light ever captured 
from the sun flees because I enter? 
Am I the dark of night? 
May your beauty forgive me if I tarry here, 
bold and discourteous, to beseech a favor from you 
that you will not grant."
-  Calderón, THE PHANTOM LADY; ACT II (1629)

Am I the dark of night?
