Sad and Beautiful Evening Sky

 Why are you sad evening sky?
 Perhaps because you have pity on the Earth.
 Perhaps because sea without shores is misty
 and the sun is hidden far away?

 Why are you so beautiful, evening sky?
 Perhaps because you are far away from the Eearth.
 Perhaps because with parting grief sunset fades away
 on the oblique sails of ships.
