The cooling hour [SWF]


Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon Like a magician extended his golden wand o'er the landscape; Twinkling vapors arose; and the sky and water and forest Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Sky-watching over the acacia trees at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Heroes' Cemetery).
