Where Is The Night - Poem by Valerie Dohren

Where is the night that I may rest
In silent solitude
Amidst the moonlit starry skies
With peacefulness imbued

The dark to steal my languid soul
Above, beyond the sea,
That I may reign forever fixed
In sweet serenity

Beneath my eyes, the earth shall turn
Whilst I remain so still
Thus contemplating such desire
Man’s eager need to fill

But here I stay ‘midst earthly gloss
Caught ever by its spell
Yet tethered by all worldly things
Within my heart to dwell

So high upon the ragg’ed clouds
Of dreams long borne, I fly
Through yonder storms and battlefields
Where all are wont to cry

Until the day when I shall loose
All chains that capture me
And soar above to regions where
My heart and soul be free

    Shows the sweet and lovely side of night. Many times, at the end of the day, I am so worn and look forward to the night for the nurturing it offers. Very lovely creation here. (Report) Reply

    Your poem expresses the wish that dearly resides in your heart and maybe in every heart but we are 'tethered in worldly things' true
