It’s a long
Night,
Indeed

The stars
Keep watch
Over slumber

The slope
Of her neck
And

The curve
Of her
Waist

His eyes
As bright
As the moon

Children
Peaceful, in their
Star spangled beds

And the elderly
With minds
Full of wisdom

This long night
Shrouds them
In darkness

But the stars
Keep watch
Over their slumber.
