The nights of many towns Iíve known
Some are slow, some are short
And some from tempest fires have grown
Some are docile, loveís cohort.

I love to walk, to measure towns
Through silent empty streets
The houses full of gay night-gowns
Whisper to all they meet.

One sees the scenes of day be still
Beneath beholding stars
And ponders on the moon until
A realization jars

Him into kinship with the night.
He sees his fitful state
His life, a lonely one-chance fight
Beneath the stars of fate.
