Into the Stillness


Stillness,
fades from an
awakening memory,

sounds return
wheels humming
waving quietly

into the nights air
into the cool September air
amidst the darkness

tears began to fall
like rain
Looking into the

fading stillness
the border quickly
fades,

into the darkness,
into the stillness,
into September's chill

Before drifting off
to sleep
at the September crossing

I said, 'good-bye'
stillness now gone
as the memory returns

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
