The coy sky
Hides its brilliance until the final hour.
Only then,
Does it reveal its violets,
Its flush pinks,
Behind a slice of orange sun,
Washing the horizon in fleeting, sacred splendour before
The call of the loon,
The chill evening wind,
And the choir of crickets
Unite in grand chorus
To announce the arrival of darkness.
