Night Moods
By Max Michelson
 
From “Winds of March”

I
  I AM in your thin dark waters, night.
 
  They reach up.
I splash and flounder.
I drown.
 
  The waves separate, make way.        5
They touch playfully my shoulders.
They whisper gently.
 
II
  The earth is melted.
I am vapor—
A wave of the waves.        10
I will rise with the wind.
 
  The hunger of my heart
Is now a dusky hillock of vapor.
Night has blown
Her breath.        15
