hopeful, feel-good poem, amazement at the way the world works

As i passed a series of attractive trees,

Oh! What a sight to behold,

The sinking sun was a glorious red,

A sign the day was growing old.

I paused to think,

What a beautiful sight,

The end of a day,

The beginning of night.The sun descending,

Making way for the moon,

A sky of shining stars,

Would arrive very soon.

A repetitive miracle,

Continuous in its purpose,

Amazing in every way,

A gift for each and every one of us.
