Swamp — A Thief In The Gloaming   1 comment

Swamp (1 of 1) blogSwamp — Image by kenne

It comes like the thief in the gloaming;

      It comes, and none may foretell

The place of the coming—the glaring;

      They live in a sleepless spell

That wizens, and withers, and whitens;

      It ages the young, and the bloom

Of the maiden is ashes of roses—

      The Swamp Angel broods in his gloom.

— from The Swamp Angel by Herman Melville
