Night has woken

A good night poem from this very strange and special day.


Night has woken

A sea of shadow waves has spread

Night has woken

Owl and nightingale have spoken

Bird tongue calling the quick, the dead

And those agateโ€”for those abed

Night has woken.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      2. We’ll that sounds fantastic, the birds are singing here interspersed by the odd lawnmower… No scythes in sight ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’œ
