Quadrille: In the night

Another rhyming quadrille for dVerse featuring the word ‘whisper’.


In the night,

when light

has gone,

before the dawn,

I hear you whisper low,

words only we two know.

They fall bright as stars fall,

a silver fishy moon haul,

I keep them with my heartbeat,

where your life’s pulse and mine meet.
