At Evening I Saw the Sunset's Golden Glow...

"At evening I saw the sunset’s golden glow across the river, and then I saw each twinkling star, the milky way, and all the firmament…"

Bryan Yancey Cummings' thoughts on witnessing an Itawamba County sunset after being away for forty years

Tonight before sunset I was mowing my lawn and as the low sun in the distant west peaked from behind heavy clouds while I was finishing my chores, nature provided a most spectacular show of colors in the form of an Itawamba County glorious sunset. I immediately thought of Bryan Yancey Cummings’ remarks made nearly eighty years ago.
