Departing Sun

Written by: Carrie Richards

Honed from old habits, you leave us once again

Leaving again, the way of lovers departing...

Oh, departing sun, you linger in the dusk

In dusky mauve, so reluctant to say goodbye

Goodbye you speak in many tongues 

Forked tongues of light, you spread your words in gold

And with a golden hand, and fingers spread

You spread your promise, vast against the sky

Where sky, that mingles  with the crimson earth

Unite the earth and thee to blend

You blend, and lend your colors rich....

Rich in soft pastels, ...until,....until you come again
