The night is nigh
The night is nigh and a star stares on,
the breeze plays still with its favourite trees.
The moon awakes with a looming face,
as dew drops on to the sleeping ewes.

The night is nigh and they wait again;
the stars, the moon, and the dropping dew.
The time has come for his hallowed birth;
as Christ arrives at his yearly feast.

The night is nigh and its Christmas eve,
all hurt and woe too soon disperse.
'ere, children sleep with a single wish;
to dance again on a Christmas morn.
Author's Notes:
Christmas eve in a West-African farmhouse
