Black silhouettes mark the Horizon
In the face of precious Skies;
And we, our Day is waning
For the Beauty hurts our Eyes.

In Heav’n God labors gracef’lly,
On Earth we rest so Old;
He melds and mixes Glorious pans
Of bright and shining Gold.

By His pow’r He crafts the Sun,
To Light the Morning dew;
Each Night He forges His Great Star
To light the Day anew.

And when His Sphere is stained maroon
Like a bruise upon the Heavens;
And only the soft, coursing Winds
Serve the Night to leaven.

While God benign upon His Throne,
Lists out His Blessings to give;
His Angels dance and serve His Court,
In Gaiety for whom forever Live.

And when the plumage of Sunset has all but died,
Has seemed to pass away;
The blue Midnight now enfolding:
God’s Promise of one more Day.

The author's comments:
I feel as if this poem requires a disclaimer: you see, I sometimes tend to be a very...traditional artist at times, so pardon the antique format and wording. I just find myself longing to be a part of the golden ages of history and not to be included among the denizens of the cursed millenium...there you have it.

Thank you!

I'm glad you both enjoy the obsolete words that I call poetry.
