Day Into Night

Day into night
Night into day
Watching each one
Fade away

Wrong versus right
Love's evil twin
Where there is hate
Nobody wins

Day into night
Night into day
Watching each one
Fade away

Fire and ice
Cleanses all
Deny ye now
The devil's call

  1. "Where there is hate / Nobody wins" Couldn't agree with you more. Nice song-like flow. Cheers

  5. Very nice, Linda! I too love the rhythm here. As I've told so many friends, I'm especially fond of poems that rhyme.

    Was this poem inspired by that picture of the sunset or did they come about separately and you were lucky to have paired them up?

  6. Davina- Thank you! I like poems that rhyme, too. The poem came together late one night, and I came up with the picture later.
