Summer Regret, Night's Discontent

The glow of summer starts to slip away

and darkness comes in to collect its debt;

take the sun and swallow up its pride

and sink it in a sea of discontent.

Light is snubbed like candles in a storm

while winds of fury howl then fade away

leaving silence abounding.  But the moon

is still a mirror of lost daylight.

Now, night has chained the stars up in heaven,

trying to keep a foothold on the sky,

but they speak of lost summer days

when dawn was real and now and so sublime.

Only the glorious rebirth of dawn

can quell the night that seemed so long.
