A Night Of Storm

Rating: 2.8
Oh city, whom grey stormy hands have sown,
With restless drift, scarce broken now of any,
Out of the dark thy windows dim and many
Gleam red across the storm. Sound is there none,
Save evermore the fierce wind's sweep and moan,
From whose grey hands the keen white snow is shaken
In desperate gusts, that fitfully lull and waken,
Dense as night's darkness round they towers of stone.

Darkling and strange art thou thus vexed and chidden;
More dark and strange thy veiled agony,

Loved the last four lines: 'City of storm, in whose grey heart are hidden What stormier woes, what lives that groan and beat, Stern and thin-cheeked, against time's heavier sleet, Rude fates, hard hearts, and prisoning poverty'. Congratulations on the poem's selection as the 'Poem of the Day'.

Darkling and strange art thou thus vexed and chidden; More dark and strange thy veiled agony, ....stormy night is dark of life night, strange in losing, pathetic in the lost heart..... Superbly expressed......
