Lapis colored skies at dusk say adieu
to the now departing burgundy sun light.
The light of day now greeted by evening blue,
like the changing of the guard, bidding good night.
The entrance now of the small glorious stars
in the milky way galaxy which is ours.
Shinning in deepest darkness, silver and gold
Small tiny diamonds for us to behold.
