Night

She stood there staring

With her black eyes

At the stars cold like icicles

Up in the endless skies

While the wind was blowing

Invisible spirits around her

Wait!.. Then nothing

Quite darkness closes in

But still welcoming

Warm embrace of shadows

Cast by the moon itself

On the desert snow

When did you last see her

In all her glory

In the midnight hour

Ripening by 3am

And ready to leave you at 5

With a sweet kiss farewell

Of the first rays of twilight
