“Rose-dark the Solemn Sunset”
By Richard Watson Gilder (1844–1909)
 
ROSE-DARK the solemn sunset
  That holds my thought of thee;
With one star in the heavens
  And one star in the sea.
 
On high no lamp is lighted,        5
  Nor where the long waves flow,
Save the one star of evening
  And the shadow star below.
 
Light of my life, the darkness
  Comes with the twilight dream;        10
Thou art the bright star shining,
  And I but the shadowy gleam.
