I hope
night falls gently in mid-May –
the sun fades but it is still bright
yet muted. birds sing their night songs
and the cardinal on the wire
serenades his territory –
Thweeeeee purty purty purty!
honeysuckle drifts on the gentle breeze.
the world is preparing for sleep.
I hope it is a restful night for all
I hope it is a night with sweet dreams
and full stomachs and hearts full of love.
but I hope. I hope.

    I know the night you describe. Honeysuckle did float on the wind, but on this night hope had gone, and was not to return. Beautiful poem.

    I can hear the birdsong and smell the honeysuckle. Beautiful! We had a honeysuckle vine that grew along my parent’s fence where I grew up. Always loved the smell of it.
