Awake


When the sun goes down
and dastardly night takes over
I will be awake.
When honesty from every flower
will be replaced by devious thorns
I will be awake.
When veracity itself will debilitate people
I will be awake,
to make the bitter sorrow turn into ecstasy
I will be awake
(when all others sleep)
to make the detrimental useful.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
