Red Sky at Night

A sunset. Bronze and mercury
Painted by an unseen hand
Where children point excitedly
As crimson stains the evening land
And faces shine in copper glow
Of those who view the dying day
Their little lives lived out below
The light that keeps the dark away
The magic of a sunset sky
Where clouds like molten metal float
Leaves an imprint on the eye
And brings a lump into the throat
