The Ebb of Day.

by Arthur Henry Adams

Arthur Henry Adams

The ebb of day has now begun;
The waters to the low west crowd;
But one forgotten wisp of cloud
Glows like a fragment of the sun,
And stranded on the shores of Night,
Where 'gainst the sky the telegraph
Stretching his dim, audacious path
Defiantly to heaven aspires,
There lies a maiden, drowned and white -
The torn Moon tangled in the wires!
