POEM OF THE DAY: The Twilight Turns

by James Joyce (1882 – 1941).

 

The Twilight Turns

 

The twilight turns from amethyst

To deep and deeper blue,

The lamp fills with a pale green glow

The trees of the avenue.

 

The old piano plays an air,                                                                5

Sedate and slow and gay;

She bends upon the yellow keys,

Her head inclines this way.

 

Shy thought and grave wide eyes and hands

That wander as they list — –                                                          10

The twilight turns to darker blue

With lights of amethyst.
