Title of this piece goes to back to a poem by Emily Dickinson (1862).

Representation is founded on analytical models for the movement of moon (ELP 2000-85, Chapront/Touzé 1987) and sun (VSOP 87, Bretagnon/Francon 1988). Visible phases between calculated dates of new moon are linear interpolated, all forms of unregular darkness completely neglected.
