A Night Before School - Poem by Nero CaroZiv
I remember an autumn night when I lay in bed
While tomorrow school duties were on my head
The lightning in the sky spun my pajama of the night
In silver filaments with fire shot thru,
A broider of lamps that lit in sapphire hue
The steadfast splendor of enduring light.
The moon drifted dimly in the heaven vast height,
It was watching with wonder how the earth it knew
That lay so long wrapped deep in sleep dark and enfolded in dew,
Should wear upon her breast a star so white.
Thru the window I could had told the streets were empty
And an adult at the kitchen was drinking some tea
The ceremonies at school were boring dark
With flaring flambeaux that the wind blew down;
The evening was black and weary a dog would not bark
With rain-quenched torches dripping thru the town
But I had found that ceremonious atmosphere as the bucket outside filled to the brim
That fire and joy in me that neither wind nor rain can dim.
