Twilight - Poem by Audrey Perniciaro

When Day’s last rays of light
Fade gently into the purple maiden of night
When moon's first beams
Reach out to caress the land with her golden gleam
As dusk slowly takes over the sky
And the creatures of earth to their homes do fly
As the dainty dryads of night
Dance across the ground in the misty evening’s light
This is twilight
Ah! But wait
A hush creeps over all the land
Twilight has gone
Night is at hand!
