- This song is a youthful work by Legley, of which only an incomplete autograph has been preserved. It was composed in a late romantic idiom, probably in the 1930s.
- The text comes from the Beatrice fragments of Prosper van Langendonck. Possibly the choice of text was influenced by Beatrix Souvage, whom Legley married in 1939.
- instrumentation: high voice and piano
- text incipit: En eens... 't was avond ... 'k had zoolang gezworven [And once... it was evening... I had wandered so long]
- autograph: Royal Conservatory Brussels (B-Bc), shelf number BV-03-4084. Incomplete autograph, four pages long.
- The autograph starts at -twijf'ling 't smeekend oog geheven.
- We assume that Legley only set to music the fourth of the Beatrice fragments.
