Good-Night - Poem by Smoky Hoss

The ocean swallows the sun
In this moment of dark fun,
While the night, drinks up the last light
Leaving the day done-
The mountains fade into an evening dream
As the world asleep becomes a sureal scene,
It's time to go to bed, and rest our weary heads
Let sleep gather about us like a thickening cream-

In this poetic way
I describe the end of day,
Though my message could've easily been heard, with far less words
Had it simply been 'Good-Night' I did say-
So to every true friend
A nights blessing I hereby send,
Praying your dreamy visions, bring wisdom
And the morn brings the sun shinning once again-
