Not Only the Response But Also

Reflection on the Day

From Visual Counterpoint
Why does the nightingale sing in the night?
Listen to the song that weeps for the day,
That passed without a care,
And drove,
Over,
Love.


Why does the nightingale sing in the night?
Listen to the song that weeps for the day,
That passed without a care,
And seeks,
To lie,
Again.


Why does the nightingale sing in the night?
Listen to the song that weeps for the day,
That passed without a care,
And cry,
Out loud,
Now.


Why does the nightingale sing in the night?
So we may hear beauty weep for the day,
That passed without a care,
And stand,
Together,
For truth.


Why does the nightingale sing in the night?
Because it is a small shy brown bird,
And fears to join the chorus,
That screams,
At dawn,
Of day.



This is a song for a friend across the pond so she may know she is not alone.

That is amazing. I love it. Now, you can see why I choose the online IDs of Solitary Dancer and Caged Shadow. Those are the two that I always use.
