Night by Ajao Toluwalope


O night!
Thou fairy god-mother
of the pearly moon and stars
brightening up
your soothing embrace.

O night!
damsel to the knight
bearer of dreams;
soothing silent voice
of father sleep.

O night!
Will you come again?
your abrupt departures
wearies the soul

Please lady night,
Come again, we’d love to know
your soothing embrace again.

-Ajao Toluwalope Michael (T.Quills)
