Poem of the Day for June 21, 2016

Summer.

  Now sinks the Summer sun into the sea;
Sure never such a sunset shone as this,
That on its golden wing has borne such bliss;
Dear Love to thee and me.

Ah, life was drear and lonely, missing thee,
Though what my loss I did not then divine;
But all is past – the sweet words, thou art mine,
Make bliss for thee and me.

How swells the light breeze o’er the blossoming lea,
Sure never winds swept past so sweet and low,
No lonely, unblest future waiteth now;
Dear Love for thee and me.

Look upward o’er the glowing West, and see,
Surely the star of evening never shone
With such a holy radiance – oh, my own,
Heaven smiles on thee and me.
