Sunset Song MAG

By Xiangying L., Pointe-Claire, QC, Canada

     Above the horizon hover sun-stained clouds

Like the combustion of childhood dreams

Beneath indigo skies the fireball shrouds

And mocks the lingering gold sunbeams

Heaven-lit Gateways of the West so amber

Brilliant with majesty glory-deep

Onwards, O Stunning One, to stardom and splendor

By cloud-reined carriage and gentle sleep

Calm twilight, so tranquil, like quiet embers

Subsisting within their last dying glow

Serenity, with grandeur gone, nightfall remembers

Childhood memories pale stars bestow
