When the Evening Darkens by Raymond A. Foss

When the evening darkens
and the day cools
and the stars flicker to light
I sat on the blanket
with a smile on my face
listening to the band reminisce
not by their conversation,
but by their playing, singing, strumming
old songs, familiar tunes, we all knew
humming along in the wisp of the dusk
enjoying the stilling of the day
the murmuring and squeals of the children
running a bit slower now
on the lawn, in the dimming
