The Loveliest Hours

The loveliest times of day

are sunrise and the hour

before sundown, when

the last light leaps

across the valleys

from hilltop to hilltop,

bathing whatever it touches

in molten splendor

too beautiful to last.

Thus God reveals Himself

but sparingly,

at the break of day

and the edge of night.

Sydney Eddison, gardener, poet, yogi
