November Nocturne





Navy nocturne sweeps earth’s ocean
Noise of noon to dusk subdued
Darkness steals daylight’s devotion
Lone witness to solitude

Raven tress of northern pine tree
Strums the heavens, black on black
I can never press rewind to
Replay one wee moment back

Ever, ever up and forward
‘Tis the way of mortal man
Dawn to dusk to dawn the tempo
In the music of life’s span

Madrigal of morning murmurs
On a moorland far away
Now a navy nocturne trembles
Where the bards of dreamland play
