Rose-Colored Sky

by Stephen Paden

A beautiful evening
lingered bright and gleaming
in that rose-colored sky
where birds were seen teaming

They flew back and forth
from the south to the north
‘cross that rose-colored sky
in the onset of evening

the sun headed down
to the welcoming ground
down that rose-colored sky
that the birds were seen leaving

but the day carried on
while the birds were all gone
from the rose-colored sky
with the last light retreating
