End of the Day

The day is over, and I'm getting ready to head home. I really like this time of day. Everything slows down just a little bit, before the frenzy of making dinner sets in. These two verses, from the old hymn "Now the Day is Over" do justice to the feeling of the evening:

Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.

Now the darkness gathers,
Stars begin to peep,
Birds, and beasts and flowers
Soon will be asleep.
