Ball Of Fire
by Ian Curtress

Warm comfort of the daylight hours slowly accepts defeat
Becomes the realm of shade
Shadow in depth seeks intensity, finding every glade
The everlasting ball of fire fails to ever last
and fights an honest battle as in eons past
Defiant remaining embers glow and to horizon cling
All goes quiet in sorrow, birds cease to sing
Experience we have endured, time beyond our count
Thoughts on this and Nature always paramount
In spite of regularity of this ball of fire which sets our lives aflame
Were daylight hours used wisely ? Should it never rise again.
