ODE TO THE NIGHT
Come the night on velvet wings,
Ephemeral chorus rings.
Melodic silence fills the calm,
Awaits the mist-like rays of dawn.
Tranquil beauty of the night
Belies the harshness of the light.
The moonlight softened landscape knows
The Destiny of men and souls.
Sublime awareness, far yet near,
Becomes in starlight crystal clear.
Approaching morn but leaves them yearn
For all that man has yet to learn.
