Another Shade Of Reality


Hold tight the night
Embrace the dark

Lit only by Luna's
Lambent spark

Keep tight the lids
So not to see

A ray of light
Not meant to be

For in the dark
Dreams can be

Another shade of
Reality

And a world as bright
Without the light

Of velvet black
Dark things to see

Enjoy the world
Of ebon deep

Dreams of wonder
In your sleep

Push away the day
That world so bright

Embrace the dark
Hold tight the night

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
