Many nights I talk in silence to the stars.
Only I and the dim, distant fires,

none else to throw a shadow on the shadowed ground.

Some hearts rest a smaller roof, a closer fire,
the warmth of other voices sung to nearer ears.
Evening, soft black wool pulled neat beneath the chin,

rain, a bog-bred thief, tethering dark to wind.
