Australia - The Sun Is Setting - Poem by Paul Warren

The sun is setting in the distance of a yellow glowing day
The heat of the sunlight has been beating down as it held its sway
The dying embers of the waning disc sink below the horizon
The light dances in colours of a violet, red, yellow and brown song
The overpowering energy of the dying sun has been lost again
The night holds sway as the earth sleeps awaiting the sun as its friend.
