Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  Henry Ellison

Poet Biography: 
Henry Ellison (1811-1890)

The golden foot-prints of departing day are fading from the ocean silently, And Twilight, stealing onward, halves the sky; one after one they fade in light away, While, with a thousand songs, the earth doth say farewell, uplifting all her mountains high, To catch the last reflections ere they die, As, one by one, their peaks grow cold and grey. Yon orb, that hangs upon the ocean's rim, looks, Janus-like, both back and forward too, And, while it fades here to earth's evening-hymn, It brightens, from afar, o'er regions new, Unto the songs of morning, raised to him, who thus 'twixt night and day the great line drew!
