Prefer the Sunset

Prefer the Sunset

prefer the sunset to the dawn
and winter to the spring
the time for striving now is gone
no more for life to bring
 
sunset is no time for rage
though Dylan thought it right
sunset is a time for peace
before eternal night
 
the chapters that we hoped to write
are written now or not
speak no more of could or might,
of efforts brought to naught
