Night and heavens


Night and heavens
blood and soil
mixtures nocturnal
spells
spells
and mists abound
above and all around

there is a water
gurgling
gurgling
in the night
but
then I found not
stream nor fount
no other source:
the water stopped
suddenly
my patience
waited
and I was rewarded.

night and heavens
blood and soil
mixtures nocturnal
spells

and mists abound

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
