The sun's setting......

The sky is blue

but after half an hour, you'll be able to see

the sunset view.

 

The water is sparkling,

but after sunset it'll be darkening.

 

Now look! Look at the sun's orange tint,

Just looking at it makes your brain

act like a mint*.

 

Sitting up-straight on my beach chair,

letting the wind sway my hair.

 

Feeling free from all responsibilities,

looking back on all opportunities,

knowing that I have many abilities.

 

Tommorrow is the beginning of a new day,

when the sun will rise again, being bright and gay,

but all I wanna say,

 

Is, take some time and watch the sun go down,

'cause it's so beautiful that it can

even destroy a frown....

 

mint* = A place or source of invention.
