The Light In The Cottage

the guests have arrived
they wait with their drinks
a roast dinner cooks
a late evening treat

an open doorway lets in a whisper of light
rich and golden, a taste of dusk
the glow settles close the hearth
illuminating the copper and brass
warming the room, welcoming the guests

the bell rings

“Dinner is served”
