TWILIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Why am I first in thy so sad regard
Last Line: And thou art here and I am everywhere!
Subject(s): Evening; Sunset; Twilight


Why am I first in thy so sad regard,
O twilight gazing from I know not where?
I fear myself as one more than I guessed!
Am I instead of one so very fair? --
That thou art sorrowful and I oppressed?

High in the isolating air,
Over the inattentive moon,
Two birds sail on great wings,
And vanish soon.
(And they leave the north sky bare!)

The far-felt solitudes that harbor night,
Wake to the singing of the wood-bird's fright.
By invocation, O wide silentness,
Thy spirit and my spirit pass in air!
They are unmemoried consciousness,
Nor great nor less!
And thou art here and I am everywhere!
