"Afterglow" Orginal Poem by Laura

This poem was in the Story I did for Mom(Ruth).

Poem by Laura Anderson February 1953

After Glow
The wintry sun has set
Beyond fields of ice and snow
But all along the horizon
Is a beautiful after glow.

Streamers of gold and crimson
Shining over the snow
And far above the horizon
From the beautiful after glow.

When my life on earth is ended
And I am called to go
May the path where I have traveled
Have a shining after glow.

Do you know the hour
when the sun goes down
Is a beautiful time of day--
when your task is done
And the shadows fall
And your worries are laid away?
Well, it's just as true
That the close of life
Can a beautiful sunset be
Every task well done
Let the shadows fall
There's no fear of eternity.
