1060. A Winter Twilight
 
By Arlo Bates
 
 
PALE beryl sky, with clouds
        Hued like dove’s wing,
        O’ershadowing
        The dying day,
And whose edge half enshrouds        5
  The first fair evening star,
  Most crystalline by far
Of all the stars that night enring,
  Half human in its ray,—
What blessed, soothing sense of calm        10
Comes with this twilight,—sovereign balm
  That takes at last the bitter sting
  Of day’s keen pain away.
