Soliloquy On A Summer's Eve
 When the last of sun's light   
 Filters through the forest,   
 Wistful thoughts flood my mind.      
 The murmerings of night will soon begin.    
  But I wish the sunlight to stay a little longer.   
  Winecups and primroses lean to get their final share   
  As do I...   
  There seems more reason for holding on to days now;   
  Time is not kind anymore.    
  I leave the dusk to envelop it all.    
  What choice...?    
  Let the night have its way    
  With peeps of tree frogs,    
  The plaintive whipporwill;      
  And cricket songs,     
  Not so bad...     
  Most of us will have another day.

I don't know if I'm reading something into this or not... I see the beauty of the woods and nature in your words but I felt a twinge of sadness too ...A 'days are numbered' type of sadness...every sundown is one less sundown.

Even if I am wrong...I enjoyed the read.

It's a lovely penning
