In The Gloam

In The Gloam

By Kay Bradley

Twilight starts it’s nightly rite
Shadows fade quietly into dusk,
Nature surrender it’s daily fight
The night scents emit their poignant musk

In the gloam I think of you
Memories forever encased 
A love that was young and true
A love that can never be erased

Fireflies,  flicker lights from setting sun
Frogs begin their mournful song
Deer graze in meadows till they’re done
And amble off so proud and strong

‘Tis a fleeting flicker in time 
When scenes unfold from long ago
Were they real or just a fantasy sublime 
Or Flowers left frozen in the snow?

As the dusk transforms to night
memories released return to stone
At home, with candles burning bright
I close the door I opened in the gloam
