Some think the night

Some think the night's a transparent stranger,
Some think the night's an opaque friend;
And though some nights are fraught with danger,
Day to night, it's shadows lend.

Night gives day cold stars invisible,
Night gives day a moon half lit;
If night and day could trade their faces,
Each the others grey, befit.

    Night has its role
    with silent hay
    lending all its glory
    to the tools of day
    some day to come
    night will rule
    we'll all be measured

    Day and night opposites complementing each other like black and white, and when opposites merge there is nothing, just perfect balance. Very well written verse. (Report) Reply
