Poetry Friday: Week-night Service by D.H. Lawrence

October 16th, 2015 (06:00 am)
satisfied

Current Mood: satisfied
Current Song: The X-Files score music by Mark Snow

The silver moon
That somebody has spun so high
To settle the question, yes or no, has caught
In the net of the night's balloon,
And sits with a smooth bland smile up there in the sky
Smiling at naught,
Unless the winking star that keeps her company
Makes little jests at the bells' insanity,
As if he knew aught!

- selected lines from Week-night Service by D.H. Lawrence

"caught

LOVELY! I'll think of this image when I look skyward on my early morning walks!
