In The Twilight Not Yet Dark

In the twilight not yet dark

Leafless trees stand in the park

Gone the robin and the lark

From the landscape gray and stark

Thinking I of summer’s heat

Of life’s sweet flowers there to meet

The smiles which together greet

Carried ‘long on unshod feet.

Though the time be lone and cold

The warmth is clear which I behold

As this twilight does unfold

And can’t be either bought or sold.

And what I feel in the heart of me

Was always as in the start so free

In passion clear for all to see

Truer than mountain rock or tree.

So thankful I am for the lily fair

Who had so much for me to share

And shaded eye from noontime glare

And cleared from twilight its despair.

So if it be soon I disembark

The ship that brought me to the park

Know that ne’er I’ll loose the spark

In this twilight not yet dark..

Beautiful imagery. In the twilight not yet dark.....even the title just pulled me into this. Beautiful!

A beautiful poem and quite a feat to have four lines with the sam ryhme. Well done.
