Early in the evening
The clouds lay low
Fading into darkness
To a place no one knows

Rays of the sun
Stretch out once more
Gently along
The valley floor

 An eagle flies down
From its perch up high
Scouring the land
Where its prey may lie

The forest goes silent
As the beasts fall asleep
Dreaming of adventures
That tomorrow will reap
