SUNSET, by                    
First Line: I gazed into the sky and there
Last Line: I saw reflected there.
Subject(s): Evening; Sky; Sunset; Twilight


I gazed into the sky and there
I saw a bird in flight,
Winging its way with instincts true
Southward 'til lost to sight;

And as the sun sank in the west
A vision came to me,
Of passing souls winging their way
Into eternity.

And moving on through entrance gates,
Of clouds piled high in air—
A glimpse of Glory from beyond,
I saw reflected there.
