TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 4. NIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Darkness o'erhead, around
Last Line: Folding and brooding all the land in silence.
Subject(s): Night; Silence; Bedtime


DARKNESS o'erhead, around,
A curtain closing down upon the earth,
Drowning the woodland tree-tops.
Stretching of hands, straining of eyes—to feel, to see,
To catch the faint faint glamor here and there amid the branches,
The wavering dublous forms and presences.
No floor, no sky, no sound. Only a soft warm moisture in the nostrils,
Folding and brooding all the land in silence.
