The Night

Oh, the summer night, Has a smile of light, And she sits on a sapphire throne.

Bryan Procter

I think it’s the night that I like best. The sails are down; the diesel is silent, ripples lap against the hull, and the drink and wonderment are cracked open. There is infinity above, and tomorrow is a thousand possibilities. A poet best expresses the peace of a tranquil anchorage. But I’m not one of those. Fortunately, there is Google and many people who post their work online. I found the following on a poetry website. Sadly the author is not noted.

Calm night

Sky has a different charm tonight,
It’s so blue and so calm,
The moon has a different glow tonight,
Stars that are on the show,
So deep are the thoughts,
So deep the feelings,
Nights is here, so embrace it in your arms,
Feel the peace within,
Tomorrow will be the day so bright,
So smile and don’t you grin,
Wishing you a lovely night, sleep tight!
