The Heartbeat Of The Night - Poem by Shailika Reeves
The candle flame flickers
Like a gentle flare.
The huge shadowy masses it creates,
Moves vigorously across the floor
Having soaked the room into darkness.
Through the barr'd window,
Along the winter's bay,
Nature's beau in darkness, and
The sky in its glaucous coat can be seen;
And the swaying branches against it.
The leaves rustle against the zephyr,
The strange croon of the stray wind;
The chirping crickets;
Every tick of the old senile clock,
The heartbeat of the night.
