After The Twilight Fades


After the twilight fades

beneath the pale lamplight

lies the serenity of night

and the stillness of the snow


Beneath the pale lamplight

as the velvet fog drifts slowly

the world stops, for a moment


Lies the serenity of night

in a smooth spell unbroken;

a timeless breath of glass


And the stillness of the snow

a pristine mantle of crystal

waiting for the morning
