A Whisper Sets Dreams Adrift
“Hush”, the gentle breeze softly sings.
Under it’s spell, rich, green boughs sway
Rocking, rocking the day away.
The last hue, pink, to darkness clings
As the birds tuck away their wings.
Peppered is the sky with wings swift
As the nightfall symphonies lift.
The cosmos’ ebony consumes.
Moonlit honeysuckle perfumes.
“Hush”, a whisper sets dreams adrift.
