The Twilight Turns

Rating: 4.9
The twilight turns from amethyst
To deep and deeper blue,

The trees of the avenue.

The old piano plays an air,

She bends upon the yellow keys,
Her head inclines this way.
Shy thought and grave wide eyes and hands

One of my favorite poems of all time. It captures the romance and encahntment of the first meeting of a new love. I like the way she is so coincidently introduced...and then the impressions of the beginning adventure interrupted by night passing again signals to me a romantic pleasure that can be had with memory and time. I like to read this poem back to back with 'I hear and Army...' (which is about the despair at the end of love)
