AMORIS EXSUL: 8. TWILIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The pale grey sea crawls stealthily
Last Line: And folds its arms about the town.
Subject(s): Evening; Sunset; Twilight


The pale grey sea crawls stealthily
Up the pale lilac of the beach;
A bluer grey, the waters reach
To where the horizon ends the sea.

Flushed with a tinge of dusky rose,
The clouds, a twilit lavender,
Flood the low sky, and duskier
The mist comes flooding in, and flows

Into the twilight of the land,
And darkness, coming softly down,
Rustles across the fading sand
And folds its arms about the town.
