Lanes Cove Sunset

By Peter A. Todd

 Poet Laureate of Gloucester 8/2014 - 2018



I gaze upon the evening sunset

On our outstretched Island of golden sand

As the red glow of the sun reflects its rocky inlet

The footprints swept away by the tides hand

The shimmering like a diamonds on the seas

As the sun now as the sun now settles in the West

The working boats returning through night’s breeze

As darkness now hovers over the waters crest

The mighty waves beginning to pound the shore

As the night chill makes the barometer fall

The call of nature brings its creatures to sing

The song of nature’s first mating call

What a grand and spectacular sight

That my heavenly Father has blessed to me

It brings to my heart and soul of Light

Of how God’s many mansions in Heaven will be 

Poetry is written from the Heart by Visions of the Soul
