Evening Comes Softly - Poetry Of Hope

Street Scene At Night

evening-comes-softly

Summer Nights

The evening softly covers our world
The night sky is lit with stars untold
Fireflies flicker and dance in the night
Crickets and frogs chirp out of sight

Summer nights are warm and balmy
The mountains are blanketed in soft grey cloud
The moon peeps over the horizon
Giving us hope and a reason

Silver droplets of dew on the trees
Wafting sweet jasmine along on the breeze
The owls cry in the trees above
The whispers of lovers expressing their love!

The dawn will soon take back the day
And boldly her colours display
On the horizon of canvas painted in gold
A new sun rises with hope untold!

Dawn

Yes, it would be nice if we could be released for a walk. Love walking and short hikes, with my husband. Hope it can happen soon. Not an indoor person by nature.

Diana,

Sorry to hear you are not allowed to go for walks.

I would be lost if I couldn't get outside.

Take care and stay safe.

So appreciate your encouragement, Lorna. Evening is a beautiful time of the day, when there is a lull in activity, in most countries, especially on farms and open spaces.

Hi Brenda,

In cape Town we have some beautiful days but the evenings are getting chilly. Under lock-down, so not able to twiddle our toes in the sand at the beach or even go for a walk. Look forward to all this again, soon I hope. Keep safe!

Thanks Peggy. Glad you find something you like about my art too.

A beautiful and uplifting poem full of hope and joy. Evening can be such a peaceful time and your poem creates a wonderful image of this time. Just lovely Diana.

Diana,

I enjoyed reading your poem.

It sounds so nice. .the summer night.

We are only in spring here with thunderstorms abounding tonight. Only to be followed by a cold front with nights dipping into the 30's.

So oh how I wish I could feel a summer night.

Thanks for sharing.

I am enjoying viewing your art every bit as much as reading your poetry. You are a talented person!
