Midnight is laced with magnificence---
The prime time of each day is the night;
Old Age is that special evening of life
-----Anticipate the stars shining bright.
For most of us now growing older---
Night is much more brilliant than day;
Old Age is the delicious evening of life
----Night is the mature age of day.
So enjoy the stunning stars of splendor
Breathe in deeply the fresh ebony air---
Greet the Man in the Moon once again
Enjoy magnificent midnight if you dare.
