Travelling At Night

I wish to see the summer green Of rice and corn fields ripening, While carabaos on grassed-patch graze Beneath the sky’s blue shade. But Night deprives of my desire With crypt-dark, moonless skies; She hides the plains in velvet drapes, Not a blink of light in sight. Nothingness slips swiftly past me, That maddening sea of black, While I gaze out the window blindly; Of sceneries, this travel lacks.
