Resplendent and refulgent
In his dawning coat of fire
(coppery incandescence against
He rose this morn from out the green and
Murky surface of the seas.
Soaring pinions scattering
Flaming droplets from their tips,
He rose to zenith. Now he dips
(through thunderheads iridescent
shedding embers phosphorescent)
Down through threatening, dirty clouds
Hovering like a smoldering shroud
Over green and murky seas,
He plunges down through violet twilight
To die behind the velvet,
Sable curtain of the night.
