To The Silent Night Poem by Ruta Mohapatra

To The Silent Night

Rating: 5.0


Oh gently passing night
Can't you lull me to sleep?
How long can I keep
Counting the sheep?

It was a busy bustling day
And I savoured each moment
Heeding the lesson life has taught
To live in the present

Now I need to gather my strength
To meet a new day
So, cut my stream of thoughts
Let sleep come my way

You can bless me with a dream
Of a gently flowing stream
In a lush green valley
Where a thousand flowers sway

Gathering self strength through self assessment with fragrance of thousand of flowers matter a lot. At night subtle vibrations are well caught during rest in silence. Brilliant perceptional poem is excellently penned...10
