Black Night

Black night 
shrouds my sight,
stills to silence
my failing breath.

Do you recall how,
by fierce day consumed,
passion's eye conveyed
love's light
deep into our beating hearts?

Glance up!

Oh, stretch back your neck,
your sleepy eyes
and see how the tree,
thrusting to sky 
dark branches, dons 
the starry cloak 
of night.
