Drums and Words

A collection of poetry, essays, and a unique perspective on philosopher John de Ruiter

Night Flight

Night Flight

As sweet shapes and shadows cool for night

Across the silk sky, owls in flight

Feel the winter beneath their wings

Listen to ice as it snaps and sings.

Such sailing creatures we love to be

Or to stand and watch from a mountain’s lee.

At once we are these sprites, I know,

And two happy men in the night and snow.
