Treasure Island

Ernestine Northover

(25th March 1943)

Sunset's Glow

Pinks, peaches, blues, greys and mauves,
Clouds that cross the sky in droves,
Gently drifting and as they go,
Create such pictures all aglow,
And give a calming of the mind.

My eyes then see trees with hills behind,
A lake and valley, a peaceful scene,
Floating there within a hazy dream,
Believing that it could, in fact, be real,
In colours delicate, and which you feel,
An artist with his very finest brush,
Has painted a perfect landscape, plush.

This view to me is always so fine,
A spectacle of an, exquisite design.

    An artist's eye for description. I have one criticism though, Ernestine: the use of 'his' in 'an artist with his finest brush'. Why not 'her'? We have two brilliant artists in You: the floral artist and the poet. 'Her' could refer to you in the poem painting for us with words a wonderful scene. This is not a feminist's remark. Susie xxxx.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
