‘The shadows were long’

The shadows were long 
one early morn 
‘Ere the great star of day 
from the moribund darkness 
Had emerged 

Where at the horizon 
it a’hovered and a’lingered awhile 
recumbent upon a pillow of nightcloud 
Roused from the sublime delights 
of an erstwhile slumber 

Now with a reluctance overcome
the pleasures of a vanishing nighttide 
With much regret to relinquish 

As the cool air of the nascent dawn
an austere chill did send 
For to blow across the empty scape 
of the deserted beach
