Poem 239 – Leave Cold the Night

Leave cold the night

Milton, Paradise Lost, Book X, 1070

Leave cold the night, let the moon’s chill beams
Remind all those alone of their cruel solitude.
All those who lie in bed alone, without another’s warmth,
Remembering this in the freezing night.
Let the night forever bite me when I walk the streets
In shadow and cloaked in wool and woe.
In rain and summer freeze the night
For lonely souls in lonely cold.

***

Dear readers,

My apartment is freezing. I dislike this fact…

Kind regards,

The Hapless Neo-Romantic
