Calm Night Across the River

9 Comments

Calm night across the river,

That’s hard to see in the middle of day.

Calm night across the river,

Where there is no farmer to make hay.

Calm night across the river,

Where large waves slowly capsize.

Calm night across the river,

Where moon lights brightly every night.

It’s the place where the trees dance,

Giving off a gentle breeze,

It’s where we all rest when we hand in our day’s keys.

Calm night across the river,

It’s the place I see in my dreams.

  1. I especially like the line’s
    ” Calm night across the river,
    that’s hard to see in the middle of the day.”

    It’s such a lovely and meaningful metaphor for me, because it reminds me that in the midst of struggle etc. ( in the middle of the day) there is a calm cool place available for me thats (hard to see)
    thank you

  3. Very beautiful, and a gorgeous (and very fitting) image to go with it!

  4. I love turning in my days keys:) awesome post:)

  5. i was little confused with your first two lines.but handling the keys i believe you meant when a days work is over correct?

    • It was intended to be dream like, more on the abstract side …and by handing in the keys I meant handing the keys after life is done 🙂 But again once the poem is out it is up to the reader’s interpretation . Thank you for stopping by!
