Last Moment of Sunset
by Elizabeth Santos
I tried to grasp the sunset hour
And hold the sun at mountain's edge
To savor more the loveliness
Of delicate light on field and hedge

So sweet the final fleeting moment
The subtle radiance it throws
The way it touches a child's face
Like a soft angelic halo glows

And now it's gone, the moment lost
But oh, what a delicious sorrow!
For now my heart sings better songs
In wait of sun's tomorrow
