A Hollow Crocus Sky

“Dark hills against a hollow crocus sky
Scarfed with its crimson pennons, and below
The dome of sunset long, hushed valleys lie
Cradling the twilight, where the lone winds blow
And wake among the harps of leafless trees
Fantastic runes and mournful melodies…”
– Lucy Maud Montgomery

  1. similar to life in Maryland after our 30 inches of snow – minus the sunset. Haven’t seen the sun in days…

    Beautiful photo, definitely captures the mood of the prose.

  2. What a beautiful poem! I had to read it again just to soak up all the wonderful images. Your photo is the perfect illustration of this “crocus sky.”
