First Line: The shining daggers of the harbour lights
Last Line: Is bound about with ribbons of pale stars.
Subject(s): Evening; Harbors; Sunset; Twilight


The shining daggers of the harbour lights
Stab the smooth waters of the quiet bay,
As dusk comes in, like a belated guest,
Waited and hoped for all the weary day.

The swaying fringes of the shadows droop,
To catch and tangle in the huddled spars:
The day is gone, and all the restless night
Is bound about with ribbons of pale stars.
