The Number Five

The Number Five

I met the number five today
While walking through a city park
He said he was just visiting,
He was both shimmering and dark.

Shadows will blend into the dark
As when the dusk displaces day,
At such times there comes visiting
Five angels in the city park.

Lovers are walking through the park,
They feel at ease in the dark,
They don’t know they’re just visiting,
Five hours away, the break of day.

What is the number for today?
Five flowers blossom in the park,
For a season they’re visiting,
Stars are shimmering in the dark.
