Now the lengthening twilights hold

Language: English

Now the lengthening twilights hold
Tints of lavender and gold,
And the marshy places ring
With the pipers of the spring.
 
Now the solitary star
Lays a path on meadow streams,
And I know it is not far
To the open door of dreams.
 
Lord of April, in my hour
May the dogwood be in flower,
And my angel through the dome
Of spring twilight lead me home.


Confirmed with Later Poems by Bliss Carman, Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1921, page 54
