The Nice Light


At a certain time of the evening, the last rays of the sun paint a golden glow on the tall firs. We call it “the nice light” when that happens. The morning light is similar, but the glow isn’t as warm as the evening light.

Stand tall, fellows, ready then?

Here comes that nice light again.

Soak it up and feel its glow,

Soon enough, cold winds will blow.


Soothing warmth and light for growth,

What good luck to have them both,

Cloudless evenings are the best,

As the sun sinks in the west.


When the cold days come again,

We will stand through wind and rain.

Strength to keep harsh days at bay,

Comes from warming light today.

    • Oh, I know. Much as I want relief from heat waves when they happen, I know that we won’t get just a reprieve; we’ll get a winter onslaught when it turns around in a few weeks. Then we’ll all be wishing for another heat wave.

  13. Oh, what a lovely rich light. There is a wood where I do some surveys which seems to be at just the right angle to catch that sort of glow. It is special.
