Night Song

by Marjon van Bruggen

What eyes no longer see
all blurred and vaguely white
across the still unhearing night
the shape of sighs for me.

Hear music for some time
resolve the brawls of rhyme
that chord within my head
sweet as moonlight, shine
illuminates the line
making words unsaid.

So silent is the windstill air
now mute the singing sky
then let me pluck one star, one name
echo this sweet song, let me proclaim
not I, my friend, not I.

Marjon van Bruggen

Sometimes I feel the need to practise my rhyming poems, although I feel less at ease with them. Last night I was brooding over this one and couldn't get it right. When I gave up and went to bed, it came to me. This is the result, hope you like it.
