Treasure Island

Bette Kayley Jones

(April 5,1998 / Toronto, Canada)

The Sunset


The sunset glistens upon the land,
with people standing hand in hand,
the beauty that it brings to them,
the magic that it sings to them.

The sunset shines upon the ground,
with people standing, staring, astound,
the colors soaking into them,
the art evoking heart in them.

The sunset of life and love,
the sunset soaring in the heavens like a dove,
the sunset fills us up with mystery,
the sunset with an irreplaceable history.

    have a nice view of the sunset... sit a while facing it, savor the change of colors, and feel what fades within you and without you (Report) Reply

    It is ok....but a word to the wise...if you want to write about a sunset....you have to really work to find things that have not been said or compare it to a person or event in a spectacular way.
    ....after saying all that you could improve some of mine if you like.... :) (Report) Reply

So we'll go no more a-roving

Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
