What Poem Can The Night Bring?


WHAT POEM CAN THE NIGHT BRING?

What poem can the night bring?
The poem of darkness?
The poem of silence?
The poem of infinite unrest?

What poem can the night bring?
When the night itself does not know its own meaning,
And all its quiet darkness says only:
A man alone cannot live as one.

A man alone can only write,
Until somewhere else
Somehow
He is heard.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
