Behold Of The Splendid Ev'nin'

Behold of the splendid ev’nin’
At the closin’ of the day;
The sun is a-slowly leavin’
And a-fadin’ soft away.

The mell’wing night is a-fallin’
So deep on the sleepy throng;
The birds are a-gently callin’ -
A-singin’ their sweet, sweet song.

All heads now are fast asleepin’
The land of dreams to abide;
All of their secrets a-keepin’
As within their beds they hide.

So until the bright new mornin’
In slumber all shall repose;
While awaitin’ for the dawnin’
When the daylight softly glows.

With all of the sunbeams dancin’
A-castin’ upon the trees;
And all of the birds a-prancin’
High a-flyin’ in the breeze.

So everyone then awake’nin’
Set to greet the comin’ day;
Of their secrets still a-keepin’
And a-hidin’ come what may.

    The whole tone of the poem is lightened and energized simply by dropping the 'g's - very creative!

    A beautiful poem and so magnificently written. You so
    demurely dropped the g on the ending of some of the
    words which adds a lovely effect. Sounds like its going
    to be a good night for sleeping amidst all that calm.
    An excellent write Val.

    In Nature we find lessons of life, the poem is a daring and positive attempt with bearing a strong message...i can say i heard the poem not read, such is the effect of sounds and elision! ! !
