Poetry of Kansas

At Evening

      The primrose-tinted west
      Is flecked with purple and grey;
A whip-poor-will calls his sweet farewell
      To a lovely golden day;
      The melody rises and falls
      As it throbs thru my dusky room,
That is cool and sweet with the odour of pinks
      From out the garden's gloom.
