Fear and Disorder Are The Dreams Of The Night


FEAR AND DISORDER ARE THE DREAMS OF THE NIGHT

Fear and disorder are the dreams of the night
Hope and clarity those of the day-

My mind cannot bear the darkness
I pretend the light is only light-

I live in the light
And pray the sleep of night will be dreamless-

But I know the day will come
When even the day
Will dream dark.

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,
