AN ETERNITY, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: There is no dusk to be
Last Line: Death never was.
Alternate Author Name(s): Fleming, Archibald

There is no dusk to be,
There is no dawn that was,
Only there's now, and now,
And the wind in the grass.

Days I remember of
Now in the heart, are now;
Days that I dream will bloom
White the peach bough.

Dying shall never be
Now in the windy grass;
Now under shooken leaves
Death never was.
