The Poems Of The Night


THE POEMS OF THE NIGHT

The poems of the night
Are written in the silence of darkness
They listen to nothing but their own internal song
They know no meaning
But Music-

They are dumb and quiet
Difficult and sad
Waiting forever
For a love which will never be again-

They are old poems ancient poems sad poems lost poems-

They are the poems of a night
Whose only hope is sleep
Not love
Which given to youth
Cannot say in old age anything but sorrow-

The poems of the night
Are the meager feeble music
Of a long and quiet goodbye-

Night and more night
Silence and more silence
Writing which too can only hope
For the remembrance of restful sleep-
