Twilight at Sea
By Amelia B. Welby (1819–1852)
 
[Born in St. Michael’s, Md., 1819. Died in Louisville, Ky., 1852. Poems. By Amelia. 1849.—Twelfth Edition. 1854.]

THE TWILIGHT hours like birds flew by,
  As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
  Ten thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,        5
  That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
  And held it trembling there.
