How Gently Night Has Fallen - Poem by Chris Embrick1

How gently night has fallen
How serene the days end
After the summer tempest
And fury of the wind
How soft the twilight colors
in the storm's afterglow
How sweet the smell of freshness
From the torrents flow
How gently night has fallen
On the distant hills
And through the balm of summer
The sound of whippoorwills.
