Not dawn

 be still beautiful bird
I beg of thee
do not sing
'tis not dawn I see
for in the still of night
I hold stars so bright
guiding my love home again
to me

Niet voor niets de nachtegaal....
Met sterven sterft ook het geluid uit.....
Vraag nooit een vogel te zwijgen.....

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets

In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night
