NIGHT WATCH
I am the watchman waiting for dawn
through the night
I see the stars and moon
pasted on the backcloth sky
lighting familiar shapes
to gross shadows.

I strain to see the brook
running behind the copse
fingers of light
shaken by wind
flicker.

dawn will surely come
the brook and the birds on their trees
return
I sit and wait
all the night
hours.

AERONWY THOMAS
