How Swiftly - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

How swiftly winds
of earth and sky
fly

Much like sunset glows
wane
in a moment's blink of time
fade

The dark descends
and day's fleeting rays
gone

Deep is the dark
that brings the croaks
frogs in swamps
buzzing bogs

For some
the dawn will not
rise
for others
nightly campfires
burn

For me a hope
one more day
one more day

Winds of change
sunset
dawn.
