My Little Poem: Night
Over at Poetry for Life, we’re reading Lord Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty” and learning it by heart. My post is about Kristin Lavransdatter, how she is a woman who walks at night, which is something she and I have in common.
This sentence from page 27 of this 1124-page book is my inspiration:
But she couldn’t do that here, for she was constantly noticing things in the dark.”
Here is my haiku, inspired by Kristin and good ol’ George Gordon (aka Lord Byron).
I notice only
in the dark—I can’t do that
without night’s windows.
