The world was peaceful,

The water smooth,

As the sun set in the bay.

Not a breath of wind,

Not a leaf rustling,

As the sun set in the bay.

Birds had flown home to roost,

And silence prevailed,

As the sun set in the bay.

A feeling of peace descended,

All was calm, still,

As the sun set in the bay.
