NIGHT IN ARIZONA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The moon is a charring ember
Last Line: And cry like a child.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Arizona; Night; Bedtime

THE moon is a charring ember
Dying into the dark;

Off in the crouching mountains
Coyotes bark.

The stars are heavy in heaven,
Too great for the sky to hold--
What if they fell and shattered
The earth with gold?

No lights are over the mesa,
The wind is hard and wild,
I stand at the darkened window
And cry like a child.
