Poem: 'A Brief Encounter to Ease the Spirits' by Alan Lisanti

A Brief Encounter to Ease the Spirits

a Nightingale sings
a song in a voice

that soothes the soul

the way yours used to
while I sit on the porch
staring out into infinite miles
of darkened skies
and countless stars

beneath a glowing moon’s
highlights in the Spring

and I know and proclaim
your message received
nice again to be
in her company

even if form has changed
