continuous service

evening light thoughts come to me of rest
but much to do and much more to be done
large orange ball of the declining sun
heads down the slope of sky to the southwest
it seems to me that none of this is a test
life is for real right from the starter's gun
there is a battle it may be lost or won
but the duffer ends up equal with the best
long days to come we sense the promised heat
warmer the world and weary are the ways
this is the magic moment of the soothing light
life moves for now to a far slower beat
the race will happen soon for none stays
the coming of the stars and gloom of night
