On Gelid Night



''On Gelid Night'' by David Hart

'On Gelid Night' by David Hart
On gelid night, prone amidst this small sea of
faineant coverlets,
A nimeity of somnolent susurrations-
Bombinate and pierce the greyblack night.

Still, the foundling lies on bilious pillow
A radiator's dolorous tintinnabulation
Harmonizes a fan's punctilious paean.

On this gelid night,
A languid pillow kisses this naive cheek.

Vocabulary
Bilious-ill-tempered; Foundling-lost child; nimiety-excess (n):
dolorous-sad; tintinnabulation-tinkling sound; susurrations(n) -whispers; faineant(adj) - idle; gelid-icy cold; bombinate-buzz or hum; punctilious-precise; paean- a song of praise
