Maria Polidouri – Evening

Welcomed came the lightless night
As smooth as a caress to touch me
And to carry my thoughts away
Into the dark and endless byway,

There where all my joys await
In silence my passing by,
Beautiful, attractive and elusive, as if
Dressed in the golden wings of dreams.

Welcomed it came, full of kindness
To wipe away my weary gaze
And to set my soul at long last free
To reach out far and away in serenity.
