I came Here to my window to rest a while. I found a Cloud. Nothing special. An Ordinary Cloud White curled at the edges Drifting As i am Drifting. As i sat Here the Sun touched the Trees for the last time this Day and left them. The night has begun to Comfort the grass and soothe the late Robin homeward bound. The sky is deeper Blue now and the Cloud has ebbed across its darkening face. Soon it will be gone. My eyes Are tired. The night is kind to them. I think there is a Young Star across the Meadow. It has been hesitating there waiting for its hour. It s a very Little Star not even Bright. But it is the first. The Moon will Rise. I remember How it rises Lush and Orange in its fullness slim and White in its newness. I have never known which is More Beautiful when it pours like liquid through my window or when it tantalize with its Young elusiveness. It does t matter. It must change too like the Cloud. To is Good to feel warm and contented and loved at dusk or it is a sad hour. If you Are alone even the last Cloud is poignant even the first Star is painful. But if you Are tired when the Day goes to sleep then it is Good to rest in the Twilight and dream a Little. Now it is quite dark. The Trees Are spilled Ink on the sky and the Dew has pattered across the lips of the leaves. I can hear music some where and the sound of voices but time is still and waiting. It has not been a Good Day but it is ended. Soon the Moonlight will find me and i will forget the Day and my eyes will close in the perfect gift. Sleep Fame p c c if i weekly North Michigan ave.
