Dark Waters - Magpie Tales 235

Dark Harbor by N.C.Wyeth

Dark Waters

Deep 
beneath the hulls
Reluctantly
yielding a cold harvest.

Dark
swallowing the light
Night
taking the last of the day.

Toil
taking its toll
Fatigue
sapping the last strength.

Waters
a cruel mistress
Dark
whispers good night.
