‘A sun of vermilion’

A sun of vermilion 
scorched the evening sky 
With the embers of the dying day 

When the great orb 
flared a final adieu 
In the endless expanse 

And sank beneath the barren hills 
that exulted in the lambency of dusk 

While the waters of the lagoon
shimmered in light of evenfall 

And silence pervaded the scene 

While the mists of night gathered
for to shroud the land
At the midnight hour
when dreams and visions prevail
