When Sleeps The Sun

The day has passed
And slowly fades the light
Crisp air blows the trees
And skyward bats take flight

Whispering clouds kiss the sky
Red, golden and royal hues
Owls speak of pending dusk
The stars soon twill be my muse

Ticking of the clock answers silence
Chimes ring out marking day as done
The world keeps turning at a steady pace
As the moon awakes then sleeps the sun
