The Sunset

We here in the northwest

The Bard

We here in the northwest

Have been draped in a

fog for days

The skies have been

burdened with

A thick gray haze

But to our delight

this afternoon

We saw the light

The beautiful ray‚ of

bright sunshine

Lit up the skies

And helped my spirit

come alive

After the flood and all

that mud

It was good to see the sun

And get some of that mud dried out

I stood outside just to watch the show

As the evening sky began to glow

It looked as though a ball of fire was

Setting in the west

Mother nature was showing us her

Very best

As I write this note to you I’m wrapped in

The after-glow

Of our wonderful sun that we all need so

For all that we go through there is always

Something new

For what Mother Nature takes away

She always gives back something new.
