Peter S. Quinn


Goodnight


Sleep sleep in a moon song
With wings of longing
So many dreams to long
Those in day were singing
Flowers of the night
With your darkish perfumes
Now in nocturnal flight
With its cloudlets blossoms

Sleep sleep in a way
Of beauties of glow around
Till dawn of a day
When reality again is found
Flowers of the light
With your brightening sun
In golden beams height
When life’s so much fun

Every space sleep’s a turning
Into endless of motion
In the faraway dim yearning
Of rotating galaxies oceans
Flowers of the night
With your darkish perfumes
Now in nocturnal flight
With its cloudlets blossoms

Sleep sleep in a moon song
With wings of longing
So many dreams to long,
Those in day were singing

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
