Evening Comes Softly

written by: Mark Scrivener



Evening comes softly,
Softly gliding,
Gliding dusky darkness
Over the earth.

Evening comes softly,
Softly smoothing,
Smoothing clear day-shapes
Into the night.

Evening comes softly,
Softly lulling,
Lulling slow thought
Into dream flow.

Evening comes softly,
Softly singing,
Singing far secrets
Of the star silence.

I live in the country near Lismore on the Northern Rivers region in New South Wales, Australia.
Born many decades ago in Sydney, I have had many poems published in magazines and newspapers over the years and a few verse plays performed. I have also had verse riddles and brainteasers published in papers on a regular basis for over a decade.
