Twilight Lovers.


Twilight in the Wilderness, (1860), Cleveland ...

When timid Sun kisses the shadows
and Day’s love Night must go to sleep,
brief intimacies are whispered,
heard only by those who harken well.

These could tell tales of lovers’ sorrow,
countless goodbyes and longed for snippets,
of minute moments of ecstasy,
alternated with longing, waiting, endless hours.

Of their yearning to stop time just then,
of their prayers to keep that accursed wheel from turning,
that separates this fateful pair so cruelly
and of their reaching for a bliss that can never be!

If only twilight could last forever,
that quicksilvery phase between two stages.
If only it could be made to last for ages
and turn their nightmare into a golden fantasy!
