Taste the Night

by Fig   Jul 20, 2005

Taste the liquid crystal sky
The sweetness of the night
Feel the depths of darkness cry
The stars are tears of light

The mirror moon is hung with care
From silver cobweb strands
The darkest backdrop lingers there
Held up with giant hands

No powers can support that ball
No powers can impound
One day from out the sky will fall
And bounce across the ground

Deep blue and endless lake of space
Enchantment of the eyes
A swinging sheet of splendour grace
Encompassing the skies

An icy pool of moon-spun light
Surrounds that hoary sphere
Intoxication of midnight
The wine of shadows here

When day retreats to hide its beams
Then is the night unfurled
And peace seeps out in glorious dreams
Inebriates the world
