A PRAIRIE SUNSET, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Shot gold, maroon and violet, dazzling
Last Line: Pure luminous color fighting the silent shadows to the last.
Subject(s): Night; Bedtime


Shot gold, maroon and violet, dazzling silver, emerald, fawn,
The earth's whole amplitude and Nature's multiform power
consign'd for once to colors;
The light, the general air possess'd by them -- colors till
now unknown,
No limit, confine -- not the Western sky alone -- the high
meridian -- North, South, all,
Pure luminous color fighting the silent shadows to the last.
