SUMMER EVENING (for Paul)


Summer Evening
The autumn of the day
Light dimming
Earth doused in soft orange light
Work done
Dinner over
Maybe a walk?
Or time in the garden?
Pace slows
A chance to savour the final hours
A glass of wine
Gently, gently
Day is closing
Night waits in the wings
When darkness shall enfold our planet
Like a duvet pulled up against the chill
Stars, hidden in the light
Twinkle as they revel in the blackened sky
Moon rises
Sleep now
Summer night…
