wandering lyrics – lethian dreams

the long september evening dies
in mist along the fields and lanes;
only a few faint stars surprise
the lingering twilight as it wanes.

night creeps across the darkening vale;
on the horizon tree by tree
fades into shadowy skies as pale
as moonlight on a shadowy sea.

and, down the mist-enfolded lanes,
grown pensive now with evening,
see, lingering as the twilight wanes,
lover with lover wandering.

[poem “autumn twilight” by arthur symons (1865-1945)]
