Setting Sun

Sinking sun pulls the skies to a close
Setting reddish hues among a fading blue
An old saying comes to mind as I look above
“A red sky at night sailors delight
Red sky in morning sailors take warning.” —
Phrase taught when I was just a child.
I watch red skies begin to sink
After the sun has taken leave
Turning skies now to black
Thinking weather tomorrow will be a delight.
