Sunset

By Henry D.M. Sherrerd Jr., Special to the BDN

It sure as hell isn’t
Stonehenge where the sun
Rises over the heelstone
On midsummer day.
But the effect is
Somewhat the same now
In mid-April as the
Setting sun strikes straight
Down my long hallway,
Enriching the oriental
Runner; the ornate newel-post;
The fine-carved standing bear
Guarding an armful of canes
And walking-sticks, offering
A plate for calling-cards.
Clearly, a sacré  du printemps
Is required, and therefore
I raise a drink in lieu of
Sacrificing something.
Or someone. Never mind who.
