Magic of Twilight

I sat alone with upturned gaze
Entranced by evening’s glowing rays
Lingering on the hilltop’s height
About to bid the world good-night

As sun was slowly creeping down
I tried to grasp the sinking crown
A hush came o’er the twilight hour
As earth held to it’s wondrous power

The hills now hid the beaming face
But night sent splendors in its place
For while the sun sleeps in the west
His moon-bride glows while he’s at rest

Softly Moon sent by her lover
Soaks the earth in whitened cover
The twinkling stars begin to peep
And silently put me to sleep

Oh, Elizabeth~

This is just lovely.

May your spirit be kissed by rays of sun
just before the day is done
Then may glow of moonlit sky
hold you in deep slumbers eye.

Love ya, gal.
