By Night

By Night

by Pinky Lui


Forget the treads the old shepherds have walked

before the dawning dew damps wild Rye tall

T’is night shall be our keys to all doors locked

Their mystic tunes at midnight to us call

Dream of that sun-kissed field another day

The lilies pure as driven snow can wait

But night ends soon when dawn is on her way

The winged chariot is never late

Come fast as maidens’ years would never last

those ample lips of rubies soon will dry

Take my hand and we shall chase the past

until the sun brings light and all songs die

Let down your window breathe the thrilling air

Impetuous are those with red hair fair
