PALMS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Palms in the sunset of a languid summer land
Last Line: Or the slow-coming of the lion-colored moon.
Subject(s): Palm Trees


Palms in the sunset of a languid summer land!
Sculpture of living green on dreamy scarlet light,
Dividing as a wall the twilight from the night!
How magically still and luminous they stand,

Inclining fretted leaves above some red lagoon—
Careless alike, in mystic and immense repose,
Of the flamingo-colored, flying sun that goes,
Or the slow-coming of the lion-colored moon.
