Nightfall


When night has fallen
You can feel
In that brief eternity
The heartbeat of the land
In it's stillness
When time seems to stop
and hold forever
and then in a blink
be gone.

May-June 1978

    It's a beautiful poem, well done!
    'When night has fallen
    You can feel
    In that brief eternity
    The heartbeat of the land' - Loved these lines, something that I can relate to.
    'and then in a blink
    be gone.' - I wonder what exactly you might have meant by this. (Report) Reply
