Poetry Friday: The Awakening of Dermuid by Austin Clarke

February 5th, 2016 (06:00 am)
thoughtful

Current Mood: thoughtful
Current Song: Wait For It from Hamilton

Sleepy moths fluttered
In her dark eyes,
And her lips grew quieter
Than lullabies.
Swaying with the reedgrass
Over the stream
Lazily she lingered
Cradling a dream.

- the final stanza of The Awakening of Dermuid by Austin Clarke

Those first two lines are just what it feels like to fall asleep!
