Excerpt from The Queen's Domain: And Other Poems The Queen's Domain. What time the sinking sun with gorgeous dyeStains the cloud curtains of the western sky;When quiet broods o'er all the sylvan scene, And twilight cometh, gentle and serene;When the cool wind of evening, light and free, Breathed from the far-off waste of purple sea, Murmurs in slumb'rous music; when the rare, Sweet smell of buds is floating in the air;And flowers are sleeping - so to dream by nightHow lovely they will be in morning light;When in the broad, blue arch steal out above, The stars, which are God's jewel lamps of Love; About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
