Bright the stars in her smiling eyes, swirling awake

Above her sunset cheeks, Lips full of alpenglow and gentle speech Her hair streams, the silhouette of pines on a calm lake... She, glowing, embodies the eve

A day's-full joie de vivre Written on her skin as earth spins the sun out of sight Held in the elegance of her fingers curling

Is that moment just before fall of night When the world's thoughts turn to kinship and kindness To laughter, to music, to the hearth.
