Afterglow

 

look to the East when the sun is low

pause with willing eyes to seek

what finer hues in contrasts show

 

we rise at dawn, rough plots to hoe,

another trek to another week,

look to the East when the sun is low

 

through afternoons we tread on slow

our senses dull, none bespeak,

what finer hues in contrasts show

 

vain ambitions fail to grow,

tempests rage yet do not speak,

look to the East when the sun is low

 

tell, what timeless craft do artists know

to refine a lissome blush of cheek

what finer hues in contrasts show

 

do not succumb to that undertow

step out of time, let light critique

what finer hues in contrasts show

look to the East when the sun is low
