A Beauteous Evening

As darkness falls
All around me all I can see
Are silver stars and blue shadows
And the silhouette of a tree

It’s a beauteous evening
And the only light you’ll see
Are the moon’s reflections
Shining on the sea

As evening wends down
And night gradually ebbs away
The fiery sun returns at dawn
And chases the shadows away
