A Shakespearean Sonnet

Night Caresses Day

by Jmf4119


Long summer days drop slowly into night
while hues of gold caress the distant shore.
Soon shades of blue and cloudy gray unite,
then fade to darkness like a closing door. 
The moon emerges from its hiding place,
with glow that causes evening stars to wake--
to blink and shine in silvery embrace,
and rouse the other stars on heaven’s lake.
But there are shadows in the evening sky
that cause my dreams to wither, wane and fade,
obscuring moon and stars in smoky dye,
thus leaving me alone to masquerade

Still, hope resides in every setting sun --
when night caresses day, they dream as one.
