Day is Gone

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

When I was little I belonged to Brownies, and then Girl Guides.

We sang a lot of songs, catchy songs, some silly, some serious, that stuck in my head all these years.
Magdalena Hagdelena
The Ship Titanic
He Jumped the Forty Thousand (and forgot to pull the cord)
And, "Day is Gone" or "Taps"
I think its a well known military song,
But when I see a sunset like this I always think of it.

Thes pictures were taken by my son, I took a few but decided there would be a better view from atop the roof
So I called him away from his video games.
There's not much that would tear him away from that,
But a request to climb on top of the roof did it.
Anyways, they're a little blurry, because he was standing on a slope
He said he didn't want to lean back & steady himself
Cause he might've leaned too far
And tumble over the edge.
And since I've already had one son literally break his neck this year,
I forgave him for that photographic error.
