Dusk at Sea
 
Thomas S. Jones, Jr.
 
 
TO-NIGHT eternity alone is near:
  The sea, the sunset, and the darkening blue;
Within their shelter is no space for fear,
  Only the wonder that such things are true.
 
The thought of you is like the dusk at sea—        5
  Space and wide freedom and old shores left far,
The shelter of a lone immensity
  Sealed by the sunset and the evening star.
