2017 Day 9 – Night Song

This night will end at last
And dreams give place to day
But must they go so fast?
Shared secrets in the night
At dawn must lose their way
Bewildered by the light.
Morning self will forget
What midnight lovers say –
It is not morning yet.

 

Notes: The prompt was to write a nine-line poem. I have used the rhyme scheme and night theme (though not the metre) of a nocturna.
