FINIS

sunset_emerald_lake

Over silent waters
day descending
night ascending
floods the gentle glory of the sunset
In a golden greeting
splendidly to westward
as pale twilight
trem-
bles
into
Darkness
comes the last light’s gracious exhortation
Lifting up to peace
so when life shall falter
standing on the shores of the
eternal
god
May i behold my sunset
Flooding
over silent waters

(e.e. cummings 1917)
