                hand side border


Slowly sinking down below the horizon
Fading in a fiery display of heated glory
The world is plunged into shadowy twilight

Dusk breathes warm comfort into the air
Engulfing the world in a comforting blanket
Holding darkness at bay for a few precious minutes

Slowly rising high into the velvety night
The moon holds the world in her comforting grasp
Regarding us with a mother's love

At the setting of the sun and the dawning of the night
We are absolved and forgive the day its harsh reality
For the night is ours and ours alone
