‘An evening sun’ #poem #poetry #writing

An evening sun 
Swathed in ribbons of lilac 
Shimmered diaphanous 
In the crepuscular light 
As the sky turned 
From a dazzling blue 
To shades of night 

That intoned from a hymnody 
Of mournful eventide songs 
In notes sepulchral 
For to bid the waning day 
Lachrymose adieux most tender 
When the hours of daylight 
Were into nightfall absorbed 
~ d.a.simpson ~
