INTERMEZZO: VENETIAN NIGHTS: 2. AT THE DOGANA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Night, and the silence of the night
Last Line: Came down into the day.
Subject(s): Venice, Italy


Night, and the silence of the night,
In Venice; far away, a song;
As if the lyric water made
Itself a serenade;
As if the water's silence were a song
Sent up into the night.

Night, a more perfect day,
A day of shadows luminous,
Water and sky at one, at one with us;
As if the very peace of night,
The older peace than heaven or light,
Came down into the day.
