Out Of The Night - Poem by Ernestine Northover

The singer sang a soft refrain,
standing so still out in the rain.
With such emotion she did sing
to whom this song, did appertain.

As peaceful as a lullaby,
her voice rose up and touched the sky.
Gentle on both the heart and mind,
like a freed bird, her notes did fly.

Who was she trying to persuade,
would she be leaving here dismayed.
As over hair and down her coat,
water tumbled in a cascade.

Out of the night his voice did sound,
as he traversed the sodden ground.
With arms outstretched he called her name,
and knew that here his bliss he’d found.

    Captivating lines Ernestine, my favourite part:

    As peaceful as a lullaby,
    her voice rose up and touched the sky.
    Gentle on both the heart and mind,
    like a freed bird, her notes did fly.

    WOW!
    Love duncan X

    Ernestine, sparkling imagery with beautiful poem. It reminded of the old musical Singing In The Rain. Top marks and thanks for sharing this my friend.
