Crowning glory aflame,
a golden Queen
surveys

Jeweled ladies
revel in the coming
of night.

I think this is how I'll imagine the sunset from now on, it's a beautiful way to describe things

This just reminds me of a queen and lesser royalty traveling through the night in all of their finery. Your imagery, as always, is superb.

My first thought was of a queen overseeing some sort of royal dance/ball at dusk. Amazing imagery, and I love the majestic feel of this overall! :love:

This one is interesting and beautifully glittering and shing :)... somehow I have to think of jewels (because of jeweled ladies) and gems all over and some stone, like a diamond, being the glorious head of all that beauty like that queen you describe. No idea whether this is intention, or not, but on the other hand, my second thought interpretation would be an old mask ball dance, where every lady is dressed as beautiful as a gemstone.
I sure had no Idea what dusk means, but I looked it up, after reading it... Well then my interpretations would be fails, wouldn't they?
Anyway, I like this one very much. :)

No, both of your interpretations are actually about as spot-on as they could be! :)

This poem is about a sunset (hence the title 'Dusk'), but I was playing with metaphor. The Queen is the setting sun, all dazzling in her golden crown of light; and the little dancing ladies are stars that are just beginning to appear in the sky. It was definitely meant to come across as some sort of royal dance or gathering, so I think you definitely got the gist of it! 

Thank you so much. Your comments are always so lovely. Happy new year! :heart: :tighthug:
