The Violet Dusk

Alan S Jeeves 1951 (Lancashire)



The closure of the day draws near;
The sultry sunshine slips into hiding.
It has lost its gleeful glow, now,
Which only goes to show, now,
That the perception of daylight is subsiding.

The evening of the day draws near;
Nightfall ebbs o'er the primrose way.
And so very soon, now,
It will introduce the moon, now,
As sparkling sunbeams die away.

The early twilight dusk draws near;
The tinted violet hues rain down.
Golden-reddened glows, now,
Give way to shadowed shows, now,
Of night-time's elegant orchid gown.

And so that time of day draws near;
As fauna's sentries change their places.
Daytime creatures start to rest, now,
Night-time screechers begone their nest, now,
And the violet dusk, the day's light effaces.
