FINIS

OVER silent waters
                          day descending
                                                 night ascending
floods the gentle glory of the sunset
In a golden greeting
                            splendidly to westward
as pale twilight
                      trem-
                              bles
                                     into
                                           Darkness
comes the last light's gracious exhortation
                                                     Lifting up to peace
so when life shall falter
                                 standing on the shores of the
eternal
god
       May I behold my sunset
Flooding
            over silent waters
