A Summer Night

Silent Waves

Choirs sing and church bells ring
Shadows linger on summer’s eve
Twilight slinks away like a dream
A forsaken lament in fading light

Silent waves break on the shore
Receding like thoughts in fright
A pale moon rises far to the east
Casting shadows instead of light

A midnight breeze rustles leaves
Humming and swaying with glee
Cool showers dampen the ground
Silence descends, waiting for dawn

Swathes of bright light reach forth
Red and purple emblazon the sky
Stillness broken with joyous song
Its misty echo announces the day
