By Mike Turner
Sun’s golden, setting rays Filter through verdant leaves Whilst a gentled, whispered wind Comforts with cooling breeze Arms’ strong, warm embrace On our hearts bestow their ease As a sweet and simple kiss Our passions lightly tease As twilight slowly fades And day’s memories we reprise Let us cross o’er yonder river And rest ‘neath shaded trees
