japonisme: twilight time

twilight time

the three suns

Heavenly shades of night are falling
It's twilight time
Out of the mist your voice is calling
It's twilight time
When purple colored curtains
Mark the end of the day
I hear you my dear at twilight time

Deepening shadows gather splendor
As day is done
Fingers of night will soon surrender
The setting sun
I count the moments darling
Till you're here with me
Together at last at twilight time

Here in the after-glow of day
We keep our rendez-vous beneath the blue
Here in the sweet and same old way
I fall in love again as I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
Like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me
With dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just
To be with you
Together at last at twilight time

Together at last at twilight time

These are beautiful pictures. Twilight is my favorite time; it's when the veil lifts between worlds. I really believe it does. All you have to do is look at the luminous beauty of twilight and you know that the Celts were right.

Dear Lotus,

Thank you for the beautiful Tango music. I was delighted to find it in the mail today and will be playing it tonight.

The Irish believe that the veil between worlds lifts at twilight.
