Posts Tagged ‘arc’


I stepped into the chamber of the night
And ere I focused on its starry sight,
I heard the chopping of a copter’s blades
Advancing, not the sound of when it fades. 

Before my turn could reach the sound, my eyes
Were won, and ears were lost, by night’s surprise –
A meteor flashed ‘cross the crescent moon,
Then disappeared into an inky swoon. 

When it was gone, I finished my brief arc –
My ears once more my guide within the dark,
And saw the Christmas lights upon the bird
Whose noisy song had turned me when I heard. 

My melody was then a merry tune,
Since I had relished much this night in June.
