Acquainted with the Night

By Tim Butler | Posted at 1:01

A bit of Frost for the night:

I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain—and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.

I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.

I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,

But not to call me back or say good-bye;
And further still at an unearthly height,
One luminary clock against the sky

Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right
I have been one acquainted with the night.

I like to spend my time with my friends. I think it will make me happy and peace. superhero costumes

I'm not really keen with poems and poetry but this is so beautiful. Every poetry that is included stars and night sky feel so romantic to me. 網路交友
