SOFTLY THE EVENING CAME ..."

"Softly the evening came.
The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden want o'er the landscape;
Trinkling vapors arose;
And sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch,
and melted and mingled together."
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

~ August sunset
