George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
8. Dusk
 
 
DUSK wraps the village in its dim caress;
Each chimney’s vapour, like a thin grey rod,
Mounting aloft through miles of quietness,
    Pillars the skies of God.
 
Far up they break or seem to break their line,        5
Mingling their nebulous crests that bow and nod
Under the light of those fierce stars that shine
    Out of the calm of God.
 
Only in clouds and dreams I felt those souls
In the abyss, each fire hid in its clod;        10
From which in clouds and dreams the spirit rolls
    Into the vast of God.
