Daylight slinks away in shame,
blushing all the while;
songbirds call the night by name,
flying single file.
Deer in dale and meadow pause
to make their grassy beds;
sun and moon exchange their vows
and nod their sleepy heads.
Wild garbled call haunts the evening breeze,
Majestic disclosure echoes from trees
And floods lakeshore sunset with accented sound –
Deflected by Sun, notes fall to the ground.
