Eventide

I ask of the night why it slips into my bedroom and
extinguishes Earth's light,
He replied softly, "I'm a jealous lover and my shade
of evening lies down beside you, as we bid the
augustness of the sun adieu."

I laugh and weep at the same time,
as I'm in love with the four season's soirees
he enchants my heart with.
Many years ago, walking slowly hand in hand
with my lifeguard lover on the sands of
Fire Island,
I thought love's charms would last,
his fire with starlight, jewels of moonlight,
and kisses-
with summer's wane he faded into
September's wooing embrace.

Yet glorious eventide was always there,
and, as he filled my eyes with the
swallow's flight,
he whispered breathlessly,
"You are mine to keep."
