Enough Has Been Said of Sunset
By Iris Barry
 
I
  LIGHT—imperceptible as
One thin veil drawn across blackness:
Is it dawn?…
Comes the twitter-whistle of sleepy birds
Crescendo …        5
Now bright grayness creeping
Drowns the dark; and waves of sea-wind
Rock the thin leaves …
A door bangs; sharp barks from dogs released, scampering.
After some silence, footsteps.        10
And the rising bustle of people
Roused by the day-break.
 
II
  Mysterious; threatening:
Dawn over housetops silhouetted
Like crenelated battlements        15
Against light of a stage scene.
