The sky beyond is painted

Hues, mixed of orange and red;

To sit and marvel, speechless

Nothing need be said.

 

Dusk settles rather quickly,

Twilight soon to follow;

Illumination fades to gray,

Shadows feel so hollow.

 

Dragging feet with hesitation,

To a chamber, cool;

Resting before seasoned keys,

Digits use a worn out tool.

 

Tick tick, tap tap,

Zzzzzip and then a ring!

Words flow in candlelight,

Heartfelt verses sing.

 

Late is the hour,

Flicker waning weak;

Author spent from stories wild,

Bluffing life, timid and meek.
