Eveningsong - Poem by Elizabeth Shield

Though soon we broke above the dismal grey
and came out of the dim-lit sullen sea
which lapped around our toes and would not stay
I lagged behind, the water calling me.

An amber orb dissolved in ebony
The birds traded their day-song for their best
a briny breeze blew in the twinkling twilight
as all around embraced the peace and rest

Resting above, the mountains made of air
the world had cleared beyond the purple haze
and glowing sparks revolving brightly there
sang softly, never ceasing to amaze

'twas with no sorrow, day to dusk returned
I vowed I'd not forget what I had learned
