496. Twilight at Sea
 
By Amelia Coppuck Welby
 
 
THE TWILIGHT hours like birds flew by,
  As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
  Ten thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,        5
  That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
  And held it trembling there.
