Pink-Blue Benediction

Soft-swept to earth’s far-west hem
Ebbs the dimming day
Pale moon-pinioned diadem
Tucks its noise away

We, sojourners on Time’s sod
Pause to drink the view
Hallowed handiwork of God
Purpled pink and blue

Dusk spills velvet madrigals
Over land and sea
Where day’s benediction falls
Into history

 It is good to praise the Lord
    and make music to your name, O Most High,
proclaiming your love in the morning
    and your faithfulness at night,
