The night stood still

And the night stood still
And the birds tripped midflight
Till time itself snickered
At its own unpretentious failure
And clouds danced slower than usual
And little children laughed with their heads and their hearts that beat in synchrony
Till the wind waged its silent war
Against every leaf that left its home
Ready to fight for its freedom to sway without inhibition
And puddles leapt up in the air
With the callous love of new lovers
Unknowing of the drop that gravity
Inevitably has in store
I watched from my bedroom window
Smiling
As the night stood still
