Midnight Symphony


Dana Ruffin

This night is golden and woven in pastel twilight
and milky moonlight that gaze lazy through timeless giants
stretching to the heavens to kiss the moon as it passes by
pouring pools of milk
spilling out and down the hills
and rills of grass and rock and patches of light brown earth
I lap at the milk as I lay in clover
and the night pours over in a midnight masquerade
as I promenade with the crickets as they play
and a rhapsody sways with the crow and bat
and the meadow is a playground for the silver fox
and the owl standing watch and the raccoon's mischief
with the field mouse and red eyed rat
the stars are prisms overhead
and the moon is almost full, but not yet
symphony is in harmony with a wonderland in moonlight
a treasure filled with priceless pleasure
where the minutes go on forever
and all my evenings could be pleasant
as this golden hour of midnight
