The setting sun brings darkness on its tail.

It closes the bright day of dreams and wishes.

It brings to an end the warmth of its rays.

 

The moon waits in the wings for its turn.

Its romp in the sky is accompanied by stars.

Twinkling lights to fill the darkening sky.

 

The sky is torn between the two heavenly delights.

It lowers its head in acceptance of the daily switch.

Even it cannot fight the dueling forces of nature.
