To sigh deep in the interlude of time Before my world of silence closes in, As nightfall marks the ticks of birdsong’s chime And let a North Star bless my world within. The change of song brings memories’ relief Questioning not what dreams are all about; So chant dear sparrows and take flight with peace And will my wings to rise without a doubt. Then drizzles spill for moments truly felt For graced tokens of charms are now endowed; When solace glides as fragrant raindrops melt To lounge on twilight’s edge , draped by its shroud. Oh, joy so calm beneath the pewter moon A journey trailed, where dawn will find me soon. Your Best Poem Ever Contest of John Hamilton Written 3/18/2016 Re-submitted 6/18/2020
