To The Night

Rating: 2.9

Maybe because you always have appeared
The image of that fatal rest to me,
O night! You come towards me so dear!
Escorted by the summer clouds with glee
And by the gentle breezes full of cheer,

Or from the snowy air you come sending
That long, uneasy darkness to the world,
O summoned night, upon the earth descending,
The darkest secrets of my heart you hold.

My critique on " To The Night Poem" by Ugo Foscolo: His poetry reads like Rainer Maria Rilke's. He takes you to the other side, and you will have to find your way back.
