                                    From grey of dusk, the veils unfold
                                    To pearl and amethyst and gold—
                                             Thus is the new Day woven and spun

                                    From glory of blue to rainbow-spray,
                                    From sunset-gold to violet-grey—
                                             Thus is the restful Night re-won.

                                                                                                FIONA MACLEOD.
