How Swiftly - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

How swiftly winds
of earth and sky

Much like sunset glows
in a moment's blink of time

The dark descends
and day's fleeting rays

Deep is the dark
that brings the croaks
frogs in swamps
buzzing bogs

For some
the dawn will not
for others
nightly campfires

For me a hope
one more day
one more day

Winds of change
