A night I remember from a long time ago...

I went for a walk at midnight,

Under trees bare and dry as bone;

Into the downtown Christmas lights,

I went for a walk alone.


Wind rushing through the garish eaves,

Carried with it the year’s first snow;

A clock rang out the time I’d need,

If I felt I should take things slow.


I walked by windows of gold,

I passed under awnings fluttered;

Through the ghosts of stories untold,

In alleys of old doors shuttered.


I walked for want to be listless,

And the streets were as cold as stone;

One windy night near Christmas,

I went for a walk alone.
