Purple evenings and gray dawns
Have traced patterns in our hearts.

Evenings when the earth is wet
We have dreamed beside a fire,
Dreamed of yesterdays -- and yet --
We have looked ahead and higher;
Hoping -- lest the fading day
Close our eyes to purple light,
Lest it steal away the magic
Of the evening -- leaving night.

Gray dawns when the world is still
We have known and forgotten a sorrow,
Hardly a scar is left of the ill,
And it will vanish tomorrow;
Fade like the shadows of dawn on the hill
When thoughts of the future sing,
Deep in our hearts, our dreams and our wills
And we can but remember the spring;

When purple evenings and gray dawns
Traced their patterns in our hearts.
