The Night, Glorious, Unbending

The night, glorious, unbending,
Takes and gives nothing away
The night, silent, refuses the alms offered by day

Day, loquacious, has questions and answers
But the night doesn't even ponder
Looks far ahead, yonder
Night silently turns away.

Day is curious about these silences
That stretch into infinity: silences that stretch
Until the pale dawn arises
Silences that from ages past and ages to come
Are the very inscrutable embodiment
Of what the night has become.
