When Night Lays Down - Poem by Paul Gerard Reed

When night lays down her heavy veil
And shadows conspire in the park
The starry constellations blaze their trail
Open blinds let in the dark;

The moonlight ripples on the pool
Trickling silence as she ascends
Cinders now lie black and cool
Among charred and black beam ends;

But at the coming of the dawn
New hopes the soul ingrain
The moon from the sky is torn
And the fire is lit again.
