As the dusk slowly winks toward night
and the darkness creeps in, low and somber
peacefully I nestle in wondering
when I will greet my needed slumber.

Creeping quietly the darkness flutters
with shadows fingering through the shutters;
in my mind my thoughts go racing
and my heart feels like drummers pacing.

Oh long vigil of morpheus deep
under sheets and blankets cool and neat,
outside the whispers softly quiver the leaves,
and traffic silencing to hear nature breathe.

Oh I recollect I know where it all starts
silently the prayers plait through my heart
so I will not be alone nor the only one
to rise in the morn and welcome the Son.

How lovely! If I'm not mistaken, this is about the birth of your son. Now, I must say that I've read poetry about this subject but, never in the way you've expressed. It brought a warm smile to my face. Well done.

Sally and Balladeer

It is always interesting to see how others look at one's poetry. I've never had a son. I have the Son...if you catch my drift. I sincerely appreciate the input.

Genea, sorry I didn't respond. So glad you read it the way I meant. It's fun when words can confuse, as long as the confusion always leaves a warm glow in one's heart.
