A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

At Each Dusk..


At each sunset,
When the day has
Outdone itself to
A brilliant remembrance
At dusk.

At each moon rise,
When night decks
Herself in diamond
Stars, and bathes
In enchanting moonlight:

The heart stops a

To feel the magic
And soothe the cares;

To count the blessings
And remember the giving;

To revere the only thing
That matters anymore-


2 April, ’91


An old favourite. Also a re-post. 🙂 But sometimes I just like to read this and hope, and hope again, that all will be well. That Love will find a way 🙂
