Night

July 24, 2017

Bright light dims to a faded glow—
Across the horizon, golden haze tapers
To a dwindling hush.
        
O wonderful Night! O tranquil peace!
Reveal your secrets, unravel the silence,
Let the ravens break from their misfit call.
        
Why must the dolor, the tears, the holler,
Be but such a piteous demise
To the glorious Night?
        
Twilight come, day please cease!
The sleepy and the serene
Are not yet ready for the raucous sun.
