Nightfall short poem

Once upon these rocks
Sat a maiden glowing
Hair tossing wildly
In the wind, just flowing
But lights grew dimmer
With the sun that’s setting
The sky turned greyish
And night started falling.

Never was a night so dreary
As before, it had been dreamy
When the angels refrained looking
At the maiden sadly weeping.

Yes, upon those rocks
A maiden, eyes glowing
Burning much redder
Than the sun that’s setting
Waits for the darkness
Now completely falling.

Nightfall short poem

Nightfall and fog off the lake lands. The ghostly touch of a cold and icy hand fills you full of fear and loathing. Creature of the night where are you going? I follow your shadow through the dark and cloudy


Nightfall short poem

Nightfall over the temple grounds A full moon expressionless without a sound Grudgingly grants its pale luminance Obviously tired of its nightly performance A starry canopy of quietness and tranquility Punctuated by harmonious chanting of such gentility Silhouettes of monks
