An Evening

Rating: 3.0
A sunset's mounded cloud;
A diamond evening-star;
Sad blue hills afar;
Love in his shroud.

Scarcely a tear to shed;
Hardly a word to say;
The end of a summer day;
Sweet Love dead.

sunset's mounded cloud and diamond evening-star are both descriptive and satisfying as poetry. a fan of brevity, i like that about this poem. the last line lands on me with a thud and makes me appreciate the poem even more for the mystery it leaves me with, the wondering about what caused him to feel and write this. -gk

Oh! at end of summer day all stay on plain nails and the mad stormy wind wipe away clearly- Scarcely a tear to shed; Hardly a word to say; excellent expression
