Majestic is the setting Sun,
Lighting the entire horizon,
Crimson rays so cosily warm,
Dazzling with a strange charm.

Its flames are leaping high,
Engulfing earth and the sky,
All ablaze with red fire,
Like a bedecked pyre.

The dying Sun is burning,
The wheel of time is turning,
The splendour and the gleam,
Will soon pass like a dream.

Once the fire loses its glow,
The light and heat will go,
Darkness will soon follow,
Leaving a deep hollow.

But surely, it is not the end,
For the greats never do bend,
It is just a brief respite,
Before another day shines bright.

Sunset short poem

Sun spreading its colourful rays, Slowly dispersing in water at pace, The clouds saluting its attitude The waves tuning its magic magnitude, It’s time for Sunset! It’s time for Sunset! Blowing breeze carried text of peace in it, Foot stamps
