Welcome to the Night

Evening time has come
toils of the day are done
watch the setting sun
change the face of the sky

the evening sun sinks
into the horizon
sounds of the night
begin their symphony

birds begin to roost
their chatter slowly fades
creatures of the night
take their place on the stage

The moon rises slowly, announcing
the changing of the guard
coolnes felt all around
Earth surrendering her warmth

As the sun hides her face
Welcome to the Night.
