Summer Solace


The day passes and cool shades
Move on stealthily, creeps in dusk
Air sways, darkness cascades

Sky bathes in hazy hues
Red, orange, purple, grey
The stars blink, moon tenderly moves

The evening comes, pinions close
Silence and moon beams hand in hand
Wishes in the heart seek repose

Woes and worries float softly back
Cries of the day now sighs mild
Mellow grief with sweet smack

The sun descends on a kingly pace
Tulips fade in shroud dark and deep
Solemn thoughts find summer solace

    vivid word picture in shades of HD color and grays too
    an apt seasonal poem
    written in a less commonly used aba cdc rhyme scheme
    classical and endearing
