The Gloaming…

Patricia's Place

It’s Tuesday at the BrewNSpew Cafe
This week’s challenge is to write a poem using the word gloaming.
I have come to the Cafe a bit late today but I do have a poem.

In the shadows of twilight
She walks alone in candlelight
Through darkness and gloom
With aching heart to the tomb
In the gloaming of nightfall
She awaits her lover’s call

    I had to look up that word and that’s a good thing. I’ve learned so many new words here.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

    I think of Scotland or northern England, when I hear the word gloaming. It also evokes the graveyard-shades of Macbeth’s opening scene.

      You are right on track, Per Merriam-Webster, “If “gloaming” makes you think of tartans and bagpipes, well lads and lasses, you’ve got a good ear and a good eye; we picked up “gloaming” from the Scottish dialects of English back in the Middle Ages. The roots of the word trace to the Old English word for twilight, “glōm,” which is akin to “glōwan,” an Old English verb meaning “to glow.” In the early 1800s, English speakers looked to Scotland again and borrowed the now-archaic verb gloam, meaning “to become twilight” or “to grow dark.”
