The Witching Hour and the Day She Witnessed by Valerie Parente
I love the brightness of the day
but when the moon comes to play
I like hearing the owls speak
whistling wisdom from their beaks.
I must tell you, I respect the evening,
and the very moon that I believe in,
the dark sky brings retrospect,
to the daylight earlier witnessed.
She who is nocturnal,
owns a world that is eternal,
because there’s never an end,
to what the soul can comprehend.
Well I guess that’s how it goes,
we have experience and then we grow,
encoding it all in the witching hour,
where the spirits accompany what’s ours.
