The Secrets of the Trees
lionheart

In the dim, somber light of the autumn
 1
When the sun peels itself into evening
 2
And its rays burst with volume and color
 3
The gods of the night are awaking
 4
 
 
They shimmy the dusk into moonlight
 5
And sprinkle the ground with a glow
 6
Soft, and neon, and sparkling
 7
Only the nocturnal can see
 8
 
 
Then out of the darkness comes calling
 9
The subtle harangue of the trees
 10
As they whisper their secrets together
 11
Swaying uniformly and free
 12
 
 
If you hearken so closely to hear them
 13
Their secrets to you they will speak
 14
Then the swift, lofting branches will quiet
 15
And return to their slumber to rest
 16
 
 
So take their words and reside them
 17
Somewhere that you cannot forget
 18
For the night is no more immortal
 19
Than the dying sun as it sets
