Sure on this shining night

globe
Coloured moon

Sure on this shining night

Sure on this shining night
not a shadow not a sound
and love lies west of me
as the earth tips into winter

all is sorrow all is pain
until words come again
to heal my aching heart

She would be silence
though I would have her
laugh and sing and dance
as once we did together

Sure on this shining night
my destiny lies in her hands

John Lyons


Based on a poem by James Agee, “Sure on this shining night”
