I sat outside near sundown
And watched the twilight fall,
Until the cloak of darkness
Came and covered it all:
The red and pink of the roses,
The shimmering green of a tree,
Were all but gone in an instant.
There was nothing left to see.
I closed my eyes in the darkness,
And the sounds intensified.
I was one with my surroundings.
My senses opened wide.
The birds were twittering softly
And settling in for the night.
The mournful cry of a dove
Made everything seem right.
The smell of the Honeysuckle,
Filled me with infinite pleasure.
The scent of Iris and Roses,
Was a part of Nature’s treasure.
Songs of the frogs and the locusts,
Took my sadness away,
As I rested in peaceful slumber
Until the coming of the day.
