Twilight memories (Rondeau)

by Michael   Aug 8, 2018


..as twilight fades in light of dawn
I will forever weep and mourn
your lullabies came from the moon
and stars came dancing in my room
throughout the night until the morn

your heart sang out when I was born
gloaming words so sweet and warm
your voice but now a distant tune
... as twilight fades

i wish you here in times forlorn
with lunar songs to calm the storm
some nights i sit beneath the moon
knowing the day will be here soon
and once again i’ll weep and mourn
... as twilight fades
