Dreams


Long and sweet night it will be,
Night for only you and me,
I pray for dawn not to come,
For the song to be sang all night is one,
I plead for daylight to wait,
For this night decides our fate,
I beg darkness to stay,
For morn will take this sweetness away,
Twilight be patient please,
And tell dusk to be at ease,
Let the moon beam,
For this night is for me and my dream,
I cast incantations upon owls to be quite,
For us to sleep and dream and snore all night.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
