How gently darkness lays itself upon the restless sea, While breezes scented cool and clean, are blowing wild and free. When moonlight's blush fades gradually and hides its ash white face, A thousand candles dimly lit, now frame the soft embrace.

How gracefully stated and how transposing are the thoughts of this beautiful portrait! Will read many times.
