"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss

The wash of night falls down upon
The sleepers of the earth and
Blankets them in a
Soft silence
The sky is dark
The sun's eye is closed too
Then disrupts a soft pitter
A child,
Who runs to be wrapped in
His mother's arms and
Forget the knavish night.

I love the sounds of your poem...particularly the alliteration of "knavish night". A sweet poem...
