I walked in lower meadows

in the golden evening glow.

The dogs ran and wandered

some fast and others slow.

The air turned slightly rosy

the warming breeze turned cool,

the peaceful silence stretching

from shadows wet with dew.

I loooked up high

and saw the trees

against the gloaming sky,

the wind beneath their branches,

mirrored my souls most deepest sigh.

these dogs who wander in the eve,

their lives most nearly spent,

truly are the greatest gift

that life has ever sent.
