Twilight - Poem by Sean Godley

distant stillnesses
the crows and sparrows
screech and scrape across
the sunken sunlight
oblong orange dyes with purple
dying into older black
they shriek and shriek their sure remembrance
sounds they screech and scrape across
the sunken sunlight
that makes a black and broken fence
of once lean trees
whisping wailing carries through to cirrus
wedding screech and scrape across
the sunken sunlight
that is dragged away from dandelions
and fields of ferns and grass
all given the sheet to grind
the colour from the corpse of the land
inside the copse and cusp coming stars
with winters wind
within the flowers fields
and loft without the weight
that weighs his wearied gait
they shriek and shriek their sure remembrance
sounds they screech and scrape across
the sunken sun
