When Darkness Falls

At night rapscallions in my head
Refuse the coal that scorches dread

And peace, however light the touch
Calms the seas where dragons rush

The crescent moon, my dreams aglow
With love so pure, pearl ivy grows

Hurried heart that once sought fame
Must kindle hope nee shatter shame

Above the sky where Angels dwell
My pealing bark in prayer reveals

A moment filled with His relief
When light grows dim

             Doth vanquish

                                Grief
