Lines Written at Easter

I say, let the night come!

Let the cold moon cower behind its borrowed brightness –

Let its heart be broken

Through its raging loneliness,

Which only the human soul has known.

Let it walk the sky all night,

Like a lonely walk down an empty street,

Let it know the burden of wounded feet.


I say, let the night come!

Let the stars shiver like scared children

Under a shroud of cloud cover;

Let each one suffer

Their own lonely pain.

Let each one hurl themselves from the heavens,

Like the rejected stars they are;

And let them contain the same generous scars

They leave upon the land.


I say, let the night come!

Let the thunder crash and the rain pour heavy upon the land

Let the flood of tears flowing from the sky

Be like the same flood, which holds my grieving eyes.

Let not a single drop of man fall.

As the ephemeral night begins creeping,

And the pale moon loses its light;

As the night begins its weeping,

And the morning embers spread across the widening sky.

I am reminded as the light breaches the horizon,

That no matter how long the night is,

The sun still rises.
