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
