The Blue Hour, a Painting in Words
Slowly, slowly gathering twilight
The sky, the snow
are blue like sapphire
The moon is shining through
the thinnest, softest veil of clouds
The moonbeams build a shimmering bridge
on icey river
Dark blue background hills

I feel so grateful
for this overwhelming beauty
And I thank the Artist,
Our Great Creator
Who gave a sense of beauty
to his earthly children
To give delight
to human eyes forever
