I have been acquainted with the night
I have walked out in the rain and back in the rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.
I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat.
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.
I Have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,
But not to call back or say goodby:
And further still at an unearthly height
One luminary clock against the sky
Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.
And the beast just laughs....smiles, nancyc
