I Love You When The Sun Is Down

I love you when the sun is down

And the twilight magics with your golden hair

And the air is still with your ecstasy

And loving warmth that touches time

And stops it as it rolls:

I love you in the morning too

As dreams unwind in the warming sun

And the air is pure in timeless truth

And l touch you in your beauty.
