Darkness Falls.

Darkness Falls


Darkness falls on a silent world,

Like a pitch black banner, hoisted and unfurled

Across the skies, streaked pink and grey

Beyond the edge of another day

Under a blanket of darkest lead

The Sun lays down in a crimson bed

And dreams of Moon and stars so bright

In monochrome and silver light

His lover Luna, Dances and Weaves

Chasing stars, scattered like silver leaves

That sparkle and shine along the Milky Way

And holds the world until the dawning day

In a reassuring and protective embrace

Until the Sun returns and shows his face

And rises to greet the world once again

To cherish and to nourish the world of men.


C Denis Murphy 21 December 2017.
