I Wanted The Sky To Write Me A Poem


I WANTED THE SKY TO WRITE ME A POEM

I wanted the sky to write me a poem
I looked up to its dark spaces, grey clouds, deep stars-
It said to me,

“You are the poem
wander freely
the world is forever open
before you.”

I looked up at the sky again
And the Beauty of the night
Was too great for me
To bear the Silence of.

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
