Lengthening Shadows and Twilight 1936

J.S. Dawson. Kapai, Riverside, Egham, Surrey.
Later: The Victoria Inn, Egham.

“…Till day be done,
And the shadows gather, falling
Light, and white with dew,
Whisper and weep; and creep to
you. Good sleep to you!”

1982: Ref. The remarks following – the sense of sadness, of something lovely coming to an end. How could I have known – yet I somehow did know – that this was the “lengthening shadows” of my idyllic Egham years?
