The City of Sunset and Sunrise Part I

The City of Sunset

The last sun ray touches the earth and go
Breathings of light turn the sky into
An amalgam of all sorted wavelengths
From red to violet all dissolved colors
As dissolved is the happiness of the day
The coldest night falling overwhelming
All around there’s no light to break it
Darkness frightens our body and spirit
Useless eyes dropp tears on their weeping
The city of sunset has at last taken its place

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
