Sunset Wings.
BY DANTE GABRIEL ROSSETTI.
Tonight the sunset spreads two golden wings
Cleaving the western sky;
Winged too with wind it is, and winnowings
Of birds; as if the day's last hour in rings
Of strenuous
flight may die.

Sun-steeped in fire, the homeward pinions sway
Above the dovecote-tops;
And clouds of starlings, ere they rest with day,
Sink, clamorous, like mill-waters, at wild play,
By turns in every copse:

Each tree heart-deep the wrangling rout receives
Save for the whirr within,
You could not tell the starlings from the leaves;
Then one great puff of wings, and the swarm heaves
Away with all its din.

Even thus Hope's hours, in ever-eddying flight,
To many a refuge tend;
With the first light she laughed, and the last light
Glows round her still; who
natheless in the night
At length must make an end
.

And now the mustering rooks innumerable
Together sail and soar,
While for the day's
death, like a tolling knell,
Unto the heart they seem to
cry, Farewell,
No more, farewell, no more!

Is Hope not plumed, as 'twere a fiery dart?
And
oh; thou dying day,
Even as thou goest must she too depart
,
And
Sorrow fold such pinions on the heart
As will not fly away?
