A Gloaming Call
By Alexander Louis Fraser (1870–1954)
SOMETIMES at close of day
As children leave their play,
And dusk dips into dark;
When winds sweet-scented blow
Up from the past, for voices dear I hark;        5
Then this comes soft and low:
‘Come in my child; for quenched is day’s last spark.’
Once more my feet those dewy fields do roam,
And through the gloaming shines the light of Home!
