When twilight arrives every evening, the sun usually is on the other side of the horizon, and the stars in the sky begin to show their light. There are not many days when twilight happens before sundown, and when it does, it is because the sun has delayed its descent, and the moon has delayed her ascent. When the sun and the moon are in the space of delay, the Lord God Almighty knows that he must step in to speed the process, for twilight should never occur before the sun has reached the horizon, and before it has completed its descent.
When the Lord God steps in to speed the process, he can do so in one of two ways. He either can stop the sun from rising too early the next day, or he can tell the moon to, "Get a life" and to do what moons do: shine as if the sun were shining, leave room for romance, tell the sun to get with it, and sing a song of praises to God.
