The Darkness


The twighlight hours are chiming;
They chime for all,
Chime for all
To see. But then
It gets dark, darker than life
At its darkest;
Aha – the darkness is here, -
Nothing shines... Nothing shines
At all in this dark place...
It’s way too dark! –
The darkness, enfoling all,
Brings doom and despair to the world,
There’s too much doom
There’s too much darkness
The darkness defeats us all.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
