Heartfelt Darkness~
(Glossa Rubaiyat written in Sestet)

The day is done, and the darkness
Falls from the wings of night,
As a feather is wafted downward
From an eagle in his flight.
(From "The Day Is Done" by Henry W. Longfellow)

The day is done, and the darkness
In your heart brings you around total sadness,
And bad feelings inside you,makes you feel worse or less,
Days find you burdened, confused,and then depress;
But learning from failures, may bring you sometimes success!
The day is done, and the darkness

Falls from the wings of night,
And you notice things that were not right,
Things kept too long, from you,and out of sight,
And the Night with tenderness kisses gentle the Light.
And again dewdrops from the leaves, with a thunderous might,
Falls from the wings of night,

As a feather is wafted downward
Discarded aside from your unwanted card,
Pain and sadness shall push you deep,downward,
But you fight your way back in the lard;
And brighter the light on you presses hard,
As a feather is wafted downward

From an eagle in his flight.
Heart and soul mortally wounded by blinded blight,
Hard to separate darkness sometimes from the light;
Yearning to feel only the warmness of sunlight,
And in this heartfelt darkness hardly living day and night
From an eagle in his flight!
