Tangled in Stars

Poems by
Ethelwyn Wetherald



 

BOATING BY STARLIGHT



The breeze has washed me clean of cares,
    The night has broken Labor’s bars;
My soul and I through heavenly airs
    Are voyaging among the stars.

Soft shadows wrap the shore, the lake,

5
    The pier, the bridge, the gazing eyes.
In splendid loneliness we take
    This jewelled journey through the skies. [Page 18]
