A Different Light


The meaning of the words we write,
Is oft times clear, black and white,
but sometimes it is true to say,
that those meanings are in shades of grey,
but, with the addition of a touch of colour,
we can paint a picture, with meaning, fuller,
by adding some luminosity to the words,
birdsong needn't be just for the birds.
Yes, by wisely using our palette of words to write,
we can all see the world in a different light!

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
