Poetry of Kansas


In the primrose west,
      The wan little moon
Hangs like a jewel, dainty and rare,
      And one fair star of palest gold,
Gleams and trembles there.
      Down in the distant valley,
Daylight fades away,
      And now the misty mountains
Are cloaked in purple and grey;
      The dusky shadows darken,
And in the waning light,
      Day gathers her mantle about her
And kisses her sister, Night.
