Alone In The Silence Of This Long Quiet Night


ALONE IN THE SILENCE OF A LONG QUIET NIGHT

Alone in the silence of a long quiet night
I hear Peace
I hear Poetry
I hear Beauty slowly unfolding its words of light

I can go on quiet like this for a long time
This night is a quiet night
And perhaps- far from my last

Oh dreams yet to come and distant poetry long in me
Oh happiness and quiet joy in the peace of this writing

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
