At What Time Does Night Arrive?

Published by Family Friend Poems January 2022 with permission of the Author.

Have you ever seen the exact moment when Night
Descends from above, and spreads darkness everywhere?
Night comes so quietly, and chases Day away so thoroughly,
That it doesn’t leave even a speck of light behind in the air!
Though I am aware of Night’s arrival every single day,
I still cannot say when exactly Night comes down.
Nor can I pinpoint the exact hour, minute, and second,
When Night spreads its inky blackness all over my town.
