Into the Horizon by Jez Farmer

Beneath the burning skies, I watched the sun,
Into the horizon, it gently fell,
While clouds of dreams, their magic begun,
Enchantments woven in a dusky spell,
As sunset’s reds then turned to night’s own dun,
In paler light, the moon sees all is well,
And destiny lingered to find her way,
As I watched the sun slowly set today
