On needled path, mid dark and quiet dell,
Walking gently as upon night's darkness fell,
The evening breeze rose, whispering, chanting through the trees,
Through shimmering pines, in muted repartees,
As light of heaven's stars fell upon life's isolation,
Reflections of loneliness, of silent desolation.
Into the brush a rabbit steals, moving thither,
Under cover, as darkness calls me hither,
Crossing through the gates temarious,
Walking swiftly into the night precarious.

I love it!  I love it!  I love it!  

"Walking swiftly in the night precarious"

Oh, I love that line.  There is something about the night that can be scary and exhilerating...lonely and peaceful...a million contradictions wrapped up in one.  

Yes, I do believe I'll have to print this one.  Great Job!

Sounds as if you have been one acquainted with the night, Mike. Thanks for sharing...I always enjoy reading your work.

 And this I say to you: why? Why? Just tell me why, so I can understand. Why?
