What Night Is This

What night is this That breathes so slow

That sighs soft dreams Of quietness

What peace it sparks To wrap our hearts

With wondrous starry gentleness


This, this is the Velvet Dark

The fallow call of renewal

This, this is the pregnant Night

The sacred womb of All

The Sacred Dark is a Gift of rest

Allowing toil to Fall away

We wrap our fates In this still embrace

Releasing the calls of the day


We find ourselves With our hearts and minds

We know the Love Within

With others knowing The Flame is growing

We share in warmth again
