Nature’s End

The stars have dimmed
       They’ve died out
The moon has moved on
        Waved goodbye to the light of the sun
The sun has given up
         The task to tiring to carry out
The trees have retreated
         The branches have reached their highest
The grasses have disappeared
         Never to be trodden upon by careless feet
The birds have stopped singing
         Their audience never to applaud, for they were never grateful
The clouds have floated off
         Past the horizon, and to the heavens
The world has ended
         Or at least that’s how it seems
