In the Dark of the Night

In the Dark of the Night

In the dark of the night, I sigh in relief
when you loom large like a full moon in mischief.
I drench and wallow in your sparkling rain of light
when the summer night turns into a frightful plight;
And then I snuggle into your snow-white sheaf.

The weather freezes and turns cold in grief;
The horror makes me reel back in disbelief.
Still, you charm me like a zillion stars in delight,
In the dark of the night.

The fiery storm blows in mad mischief;
Tears you away from me, O ! my coral reef.
I gaze at the sky and mourn all along tonight
when I find no trace of yours upright.
O! the memories – the only succor in grief,
In the dark of the night.
