The day burned crimson with a fever of delight
Until the weary sun
Slipped quietly to rest;
Day sighed, and breathed across the stippled sky
A hushed rhapsody
Of purple couched notes --
Dusk heard, and padded in on somber feet.

I caught the panoramic loveliness
Of man towers silhouetted hazily
Against a myriad-tinted sky.

Lights blinked -- first here -- then there
As Dark began to mount
The weary, weary steps
Up to his ebony throne.
