Night Fell

“Night fell

And we walked old paths

Become new in the velvet dark

We brushed by

The pinprick luminousity of a tiny hidden people

And held our breathe

Lest they be extinguished by it

We felt the flanks of gentle giants

Their ancient hearts rumbling

Beneath our fingertips

We sat in starry silence

As electric lights

Danced about the surface of a lily pond

Serenaded by the croaking chorus

Of invisible amphibians

We rested in the cool whisper

Of a burling brook

Talked of nothing

Talked of everything


Night fell

And we walked together

In company so strange, yet so wonderfully familiar”

– Will Watterson, 2004
