Nightfall – A poem by Moyurie Som

As the darkest shade of blue fell down;
To touch the earth and hide the ground,
The moon came in with all her grace,
And tiny stars fell in place…

A gloomy sky it was with a misty vein,
A tranquil street and serene lane,
Fireflies flickering on top of trees,
The wind was singing through the leaves…

Mighty structures stood in rows,
People there all in a doze
Miles away trains went by,
Their rattling sound like a faded cry…

And when the gloom was fading away,
There was approaching a new day,
With the rising sun and time to strive,
With the foggy dawn and the dreary life…
