    I
    You gaze silently
    and stare squinting
    through your stained glass panes.

    Now pulling aside
    sapphire drapes
    of flowing somber samite
    Replete with glowing organdy
    You gaze out.

    Lo, a lazy mesmerized
    quixotic moon--
    blithely blows kisses,
    wryly winks
    and coyly smiles.

    Yea, a light seesaw of a day
    of ecstasy and spritely delight--
    now wanes to a quiet evening tune.

    II
    Transfixed you
    muse --attent through moist
    window panes.

    And now enter the past pains
    through
    a flowing Rorschach panorama
    of fluid specters--

    a pentimento painting
    of myriad serpentine days
    metamorphosing
    into mellifluous mellowing nights.

    Now mirthful,
    this moon merrily
    mills reticent
    clouds in a star
    clustered plight.

    The meeting with Morpheus...
    --wondering of his mood--
    cheery and cherry,
    one hopes.

    III

    In the soft security
    of your pliant bed--
    a weary cheek cradled
    in thoughts of this
    day now blithely tread--

    a voice and vision from the past--
    "night night
    nighty nite
    sleep tight".
