The Night
By Marion Strobel
 
From “Song Sketches”

THE NIGHT binds darkness round my eyes
And makes me wise.
The quiet hours beguile—
Like maidens chaste in single file,
Like maidens who have said,        5
“Be comforted.”
The truth of day falls far away
And far away …
And all the little gaieties
Are dressed in colors as I please;        10
And sadness has a gentle hand
I understand.
 
The night bound darkness round my eyes—
I was made wise.
