 THE TWILIGHT TURNS FROM AMETHYST 
by James Joyce


The twilight turns from amethyst

To deep and deeper blue,

The lamp fills with a pale green glow

The trees of the avenue.


The old piano plays an air,

Sedate and slow and gay;

She bends upon the yellow keys,

Her head inclines this way.


Shy thought and grave wide eyes and hands

That wander as they list --

The twilight turns to darker blue

With lights of amethyst.
