O' Pleasant twilight evening!


Neither day; Nor night;
O' Pleasant twilight evening!
You live long!

But, why do you seem
to have lost your light
and lustre like me?

Is your lover also cruel!
Had he also left you and not yet
returned to you, like my husband?

    Some evenings are painted with such beauty, I wish it to stay forever. But all the elemental details begin to fade and before you know it, such lovely scene is forever gone. A wonderful and indepth poem. Good work. (Report) Reply

    In twilight's hazy lustre, everything looks beautiful and pleasant, but it is also a reminder of impending darkness! Enjoyed the poem! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
