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.
That is quite inspiring!
