Twilight Descends, 2021

Vivid day’s end as lavender twilight descends
Gentle breezes whisper with mockingbird’s trills
While an orange tangerine sun sinks and transcends
Brisk evening air tumbles, bringing cold chills

Gentle breezes whisper with mockingbird’s trills
Singing with a broken heart of melancholic love
Brisk evening air tumbles, bringing cold chills
As his voice carries through green boughs above

Singing with a broken heart of melancholic love
I recall the agony of heartache he’s been through
As his voice carries through green boughs above
Crooning sorrow in hues of dark indigo blue

I recall the agony of heartache he’s been through
While orange tangerine sun sinks and transcends
He croons sorrow in hues of dark indigo blue
Vivid day’s end as lavender twilight descends.
