Sunsets


Diffuse sunset of pastel china blue,
Golden marbling beautifying the hue,
Feathery white diagonals of vapour trails,
Linger dying a distant as daylight pales.

Blanket sky scape lilac tinted,
Escaping failing sun not even hinted,
Falling light eerily subdued,
Tonight's sunset barely construed.

Inlaid bronze clouds shining majestic might
Glide stately; heavy purple quilt brings the night,
The sky taken, cajoled prematurely to slink
Into its slumber; fading edges of foaming pink.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
