Default S2S13K Challenge....poem by Pauline Johnson

March 10, 1861 was the birthdate of Emily Pauline Johnson, a Canadian native author and poet. She was born in Brantford on the Six Nations Mohawk reservation to a native father and English mother. I don't read much poetry, but I found her poem 'At sunset' to be beautiful and so vividly descriptive and colourful. I have only quoted the first verse, but I think it is enough to inspire many a colourful card!


At Sunset

To-night the west o'er-brims with warmest dyes;
Its chalice overflows
With pools of purple colouring the skies,
Aflood with gold and rose;
And some hot soul seems throbbing close to mine,
As sinks the sun within that world of wine.
