You bring us your beauty at the end of each day,
Shared so unselfishly.
No one really notices beyond the brilliance that you offer,
When evening turns to sunset that your display is scientific – no matter.
You ceremoniously paint the western sky with your light,
Bringing dramatic, warm, romantic hues of color for all to admire.
You guide us to the horizon with your nightly descend,
As we stare in still wonder never taking for granted this amazing sight.
Some days you’re aided with clouds and other aspects of nature,
Maybe birds soaring high one last time this day.
If one is so inspired we may be standing by a lake,
To see your beauty not once, but twice as it spreads on the surface.
Reflections of emotion caught in the beams of your light,
To be remembered and imprinted in our mind.
We thank you for your contribution at the end of this day,
And look forward until tomorrow when you become visible to us again.
