Poetry Reads – 3

At Sunset
By Emily Pauline Johnson – 1861 – 1913

I.

To-night the west o’er-brims with warmest dyes;
    Its chalice overflows
    With pools of purple colouring the skies,
    Aflood with gold and rose;
    And some hot soul seems throbbing close to mine,
    As sinks the sun within that world of wine.

II.

    I seem to hear a bar of music float
    And swoon into the west;
    My ear can scarcely catch the whispered note,
    But something in my breast
    Blends with that strain, till both accord in one,
    As cloud and colour blend at set of sun.

III.

    And twilight comes with grey and restful eyes,
    As ashes follow flame.
    But O! I heard a voice from those rich skies
    Call tenderly my name;
    It was as if some priestly fingers stole
    In benedictions o’er my lonely soul.

IV.

    I know not why, but all my being longed
    And leapt at that sweet call;
    My heart outreached its arms, all passion thronged
    And beat against Fate’s wall,
    Crying in utter homesickness to be
    Near to a heart that loves and leans to me.
