O NIGHT, BE LONG
BY N. KOUCHAK
O NIGHT, be long--long as an endless year!
Descend, thick darkness, black and full of fear!
To-night my heart's desire has been fulfilled--
My love is here at last--a guest concealed!
Dawn, stand behind seven mountains--out of sight,
Lest thou my loved one banish with thy light;
I would for ever thus in darkness rest
So I might ever clasp him to my breast.
