Country Night
By William H. Simpson
From “Along Old Trails”

NIGHT, you have soft fur,
And it is black;
I hear you purr, purr.
Night, you fly to my door,
A tired raven        5
From the world quarters four.
(Is your nest in the hedge
By the road,
Or on the moon’s edge?)
Night, you are a sleepy girl—        10
Arms around my neck,
Your dark hair in a whirl.
