EVENTIDE.

The lonely path that I would tread
At night-fall by the pixies led,
It leadeth to the no-man’s land
Where plighted, linked lovers stand:—
Lips sealing lips, in silence they
Give ear to what the heavens say:—
The evening star to setting sun——
“The day has half its course to run.”

                                                                        Ernest Radford.
