Poem: An Australian Sunrise

By Robert Louis Stevenson The morning star paled slowly, The cross hung low to the sea, And down the shadowy reaches The tide came swirling free. The luscious purple vapour Rose from the river’s breast, The kingfisher came darting Out of his crannied nest. The bulrushes and reed beds Put off their sallow grey, And burnt with cloudy crimson At the “Dawning of the Day.”
