Evening

What a mysterious witch the lady is
That changes her face and colors her hair
Once golden and pale the blue of her gown
Blazes with color and then calms down
To a deep shade of night.

What wonders she works that mistress fair
That stains her lips red as she changes
And magically sets her dress afire
And the violent shades exchanges
For those that are twilight.

And darkening still her blue eyes bright
Turn swiftly into pinpoints of light
Her tresses have blackened and embers fade
As the mistress of night moves in
The maiden of day gives flight

Marjorie said...

Thanks all for the lovely comments!

Dani- I am in school right now, but I haven't specifically studied poetry. I have been writing them since I was 9 years old. I don't think that counts, and I rarely get a poem that comes out the way I want it.

Niki said...

Wow this is brilliant. Well done :)

Tundiel said...
