Day is Done

Twilight at Cook's Meadow

The day is done, and the darkness
Falls from the wings of night...

...And the night shall be filled with music,
And the cares, that infest the day,
Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs,
And as silently steal away.

   Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Beautiful contrast between the hills/mountains and the sky. At first I thought you were "singing" the campfire son. . . Day is done, gone the sun, from the hills, , , etc Ü Your quote is as beautiful and meaningful!
