There was a gentle breeze

There was a gentle breeze 
that ev’ntide 
Which drifted o’er the deserted realm 
on the wings of a dusk 
in lachrymose hue attired 
Veiled in a lilac gauze and edged by petal pink

As a pale moon
etched upon the celestial canvas 
in a chalk white
Rose in yonder sky 

Discreet as a whisper 

Amid the cool mists
pervading marble cloisters 
in a realm of shadows 

While phantoms of nightfall 
hovered awhile 
Upon the crest of distant hills 
on the cusp of a silent evenfall
