    Hello amenOra, I've had a lovely day, by a lake, fringed with slender-billed gulls and black-winged stilts. Thank you very much for your lovely response. Fond regards, Tony.

    Nice sonnet, Tony. Actually I am only partly sure it's a sonnet, but yeah -- I really loved the flowing language, my fav. part was already quoted above, by Johntee. Thanks for sharing. Still melting the cold grip winter had! Birds singing, have a nice day!

    "Whilst stalks the darkling verse as evening strains
    The ink into its own decaying light." Sepia in every
    stroke. A great crepuscular piece

    The Gloaming Lays

    As old as I well versed in winter pains,
    Weighs poorly on the words that I indite
    Whilst stalks the darkling verse as evening strains
    The ink into its own decaying light.
    What wasted bard would write of this domain,
    Would I then profit wisdom and repair?
    Such foolishness, yet why should I complain,
    Lest I would wane in hope into despair.
    Yet wait not for the ending of the day,
    The fading ink that stains the turning leaf.
    No light will come of it who turns away,
    Rolls darkness with the light to weigh belief.
    Still sings the bard but never would deny,
    The gloaming lays of winter passing by.
