Acquainted With The Night

I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain—and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.
I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.
I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,
But not to call me back or say good-by;
And further still at an unearthly height,
One luminary clock against the sky
Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.

    • Querido Leo. El otoño es un momento especial, un tiempo para es un momento para la inmersión. Es un momento para practicar senderismo en el hermoso paisaje y un para leer poemas.
      Me alegro que te guste mi post.
      Feliz fin de semana a ti también, Leo 🙂

  1. your photos show the beauty of autumn in Denmark, dear Hanna. I would have liked to do this walk with you. Have a nice day, kind regards Mitza

    • Lovely to hear from you, Isabel. The old buildings are part of Copenhagen’s Fortification mostly built between 1885 og 1894.
      All the best,
