Shadows casting all around
Sinking sun behind the clouds
Rags of crimson, purple and gold
Reaching to lands far, unseen
Evening falls without a sound

Twilight comes on silent wings
Enshrouds the parti-colored sky
Shadows merge in sinking light
Dewdrops fall on cold damp grass
And now an evening mist it brings

Light gives way to velvet sky
Bejeweled with starry clusters bright
Moonbeams awake the midnight song
From hunting owls passing by
Silence falls upon us all

Wind blows gently through the trees
Heavenly lights upon us fall
Moonbeams shine a goodnight kiss
To every child great or small
