A Nights Dream Poem by William Kofoed

A Nights Dream



At days end
as I sat
tired and alone
waiting for the night

I saw her walking
moving towards me
steps of flowing grace
and a form that caught my eye

full blonde hair
of curls so tight
that framed her face
and bright blue eyes

and I wondered
at her beauty
and why that she
would come to me

and she reached out
and took my hand
and pulled me into
her warm embrace

into the night
together we did go
mingling in the joys
that we could find

and through the night
we did explore
of all the treasures
that each did hold

in morning's light
we did part
and went each are ways
into the day

and at days end
I did return
as saw her there
turned from me

her flowing grace
her pleasing form
and her gaze
was not for me

and as I longed
for her embrace
and another night
with her to be

without a glance
and turned from me
she walked away
leaving me alone

and in aching
and empty night
wonder did I
at what had been
