This cold night


This night is white, this night is cold...
I have no feeling in my toes...
This night is dark, this night is cold...
As I watched a childs spirit arose...
Up, and up into the clouds,
I see it rise into this night...
This night thats cold as winter's ice...
All I see now is a cold stone body lying in the snow...
All that is left after the police have gone,
Is a maroon spot shinning brightly at dawn...

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
