Evening's Come

The sun's last long rays have descended and are lost in the lengthening shadows

And evening's come,

That dusky twilight before the night when all things ease,

Then quiet,

Gathered in before the dark.

There is a stillness now

Within which all things seem balanced to a common end.


And half dreamt thoughts gentle nudge the corners of my mind

And I grasp at them even as they dance away again.

Recollections which whisper to the spirit and tease the soul.

Like memories of dreams to come

Or echoed whispers of the rain

Which words speak


Whispering my name

In the familiar remembered ways

Candlelit enchantments as the evening grows

And I gaze to far away

Beyond this familiar scene

For what is time that it could bind me here?

Speak my name in the gentle sigh of the winds

Which slip the boughs to caress evenings dreams

Dancing in moonlight's silver beam

Beneath the trees

Remember me

As I you

As I you

And draw me forth on memory's gossamer wings

And say the words distance and time deny

The touch of you

Tell me, I love you

The scent of your hair

Kiss me my love

The hidden secrets within your eyes

Speak with softest press of lips to mine

And wake my heart to love again

Do you across the distant miles

Pause beneath the silvery moon

And dream on cloudless nights my spirit's caress

Bound to you on evening breeze

With gifts of honeysuckle scents

Beneath magnolias

And dance in dreams as lovers do

Softly slow

More held than moved

And melt within each others arms

To join

Embraced as one

Within the rhythm of the night

 Of such flights of thoughts are moments as these

Lost within the evenings breeze
