  • In Quiet Breath
     
    By Josephine Cardin
     
     
    "Let us yield then, you and I,
    To the waftings, calm and sweet,
    As their breeze-blown lullaby
    Sways the gold grass at your feet.
     
    And, when night begins to fall
    From the black oaks, darkening,
    In the nightingale’s soft call
    Our despair will, solemn, sing."
     
    ~ From In Muted Tone, by Paul Verlaine
