Night


My crying is done under the cloak of night
When the tears know how to fall in the star-softened light

The heart knows how to rest in a cradle of sky
and Dreams know how to wake as shadows slip by

Night is a time for thinking and feeling,
a time for loving, and a time for being.

The moon is free, as are the leaves that breathe
the leaves that whisper, the leaves that are sheathed

in that Star-light, that milky presence of sleep
that coaxes lovers to love, and dreamers to weep

Earth-night is like a dance, swaying so slightly to a tune
that is sung by the stars, and strummed by the moon

A ginger waltz, at first, then a heart-breaking ballet,
each night-soul will have its turn to pray

before the silvered throne of Father Time, so sad
It is no wonder Mother-Earth has nearly gone mad

With her wondrous dreamland, not be found in the light,
Her mad dreams can only be felt in the night.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
