The Evening Hour

Figure descriptions
Two figures meet next to a body of water. One figure crouches near the shore; the other figure stands and holds a fishing rod. Trees line the shore and extend up a hill and into the distance. A church steeple and multiple building roofs are visible beyond the tree line. Dark clouds hang low in the sky. The top section of the illustration is partially contained within a circular border. The border connects to the illustrated content on the shore lines to the left and right of the two central figures. The body of water and some of the illustration’s plant life extends down the page beyond the circular border. The poem title and a quotation from the poem text are let in to a blank rectangular space at the bottom of the illustration. The main background of the illustration appears to be lightly shaded; it is composed of densely packed dots. Full-page illustration.
