IN THE SHADOWS, by                    
First Line: Last night the wind went singing
Last Line: Upon the harp.
Subject(s): Grief; Shadows; Sorrow; Sadness

Last night the wind went singing
through the starlight
And I was glad.
It was like music of a thousand
harp strings,
Who could be sad?
Tonight the wind is sweeping
through the shadows
Savage and sharp.
The thousand strings are shattered
into fragments
Upon the harp.
