How the Sun Set · 365 Project

How the Sun Set by Rondi Aastrup · 365 Project

I'll tell you how the sun rose,--
A ribbon at a time.
The steeples swam in amethyst,
The news like squirrels ran.

The hills untied their bonnets,
The bobolinks begun.
Then I said to myself softly,
"That must have been the sun!"

But how he set I know not
There seemed a purple stile
Which little yellow boys and girls
Were climbing all the while

Til when they reached the other side,
A dominie in gray
Put gently up the evening bars
And led the flock away

~Emily Dickinson
