Lucy Maud Montgomery (Люси Мод Монтгомери)


Sea Sunset


A gallant city has been builded far
In the pied heaven,
Bannered with crimson, sentinelled by star 
Of crystal even;
Around a harbor of the twilight glowing,
With jubilant waves about its gateways flowing 

A city of the Land of Lost Delight,
On seas enchanted,
Presently to be lost in mist moon-white 
And music-haunted;
Given but briefly to our raptured vision,
With all its opal towers and shrines elysian. 

Had we some mystic boat with pearly oar
And wizard pilot,
To guide us safely by the siren shore 
And cloudy islet,
We might embark and reach that shining portal
Beyond which linger dreams and joys immortal. 

But we may only gaze with longing eyes
On those far, sparkling
Palaces in the fairy-peopled skies, 
O’er waters darkling,
Until the winds of night come shoreward roaming,
And the dim west has only gray and gloaming.
