I Begged The Night To Stay - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

Sassing the night
As it took flight.
'Too Soon! ' I Cried!
Yet it did not linger,
Drifting into dawn...
Soon you were gone -
The dream ended!

    your title is very good. i clicked on your poem because i like your title
    and when i read your poem,
    i loved it at once
    because you told a story that tells more though your poem ended already.
