The mellow rays of sun shine,
dancing through the curtains,
flitting in and out of my room,
touching my bare feet at dusk.
Reminding me of the interlude,
of inevitable darkness that follows.
Asking me to pause, if only for a moment,
and bask in this diminishing radiance.
Ordering me to gather a little light,
to last me through the cold moonless night.
