From Night to Day

Northbrook Somme Woods
As Philip watched the evening shine
With tiny stars to pierce the dark,
He felt a cooling calm and peace
Then dread turned on his mind to mark
With fear that all about his head
Were coffin lids to seal the dead.

Then Philip saw how dawn was cast,
How darkness bowed and night flew past.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. I could hear strains of the Monster Mash, that graveyard smash, as I sat with Philip through the long night; don’t know where I picked up on the levity, but somehow I did.

  2. I always smile in anticipation when I click your link, even before I read the verse, because I know I’m about to get an absolutely masterful rhyme. This doesn’t disappoint.

  3. I relate to this poem- as moments of peace for me are also sometimes interrupted by anxious or depressive thoughts. The darkness bowing to the dawn, however, is a good reminder that even our darkest thoughts will succumb to light and positivity.

    Great piece, wonderful rhyming. I enjoyed reading it 🙂
