When The Night Rests And Ruminates


When the night rests and ruminates
As hour after hour strike and pass
The sea-waves out of tempest’s clutch
How mellow-swish the coast-rocks they lap!

When the night rests and ruminates
And houses one by one put off the lights
As the stars one by one put on their light
How wonder strides on that noble sight!

Sad, sad, sad but noble in the heart:
The mind speaks, the tongue is mute,
But the hands writes and verses flow
And Emotions roll wave after wave of Art.
