Day’s End

Day is dying, dignified,

slipping slow to sleep;

Night is sighing, signified

by a darkness deep.

Work is over, tasks complete,

hands allowed to rest;

Clouds are nodding as they greet

sunset in the west.

    A gentle ending to the day. And hey, we can see the red barn without snow!

    So, as clouds are nodding, I am going to my home just now! For today, I can stop work!

    You really should put a chapter-book of your poems together and submit it to a publisher. Your work is wonderful!
