Sisters 'Night' And 'Dawn' - Poem by Dr. Tulsi Hanumanthu
Sisters 'Night' and 'Dawn' (An Experimental Sonnet)
Nocturnal feathered-fliers homeward bound,
Furl their wings, their haunts having refound.
They then their message hoot unto the sky:
“The time for Night to sleep is drawing nigh”.
Blown out, soon, the astral candles are;
Extinguished lies the lunar superstar.
The Sky, then, upon her lap does keep
Her daughter Night whom she rocks to sleep.
The cocks, now astir, begin to crow:
“It’s time, O Sky, for Dawn to herself show”.
The blanket black by mother Sky removed,
Appears Dawn, with choicest charm imbued!
Ruddy cheeks and lips and auburn hair,
Blue eyes, pearly smiles -Oh! let me stare!
