Hem of Night


Take your place, my child,
where shadows born this morning
touch the hem of night.

  10. Such sad news, so tenderly conveyed by your poem and image.
    I shall miss her pretty heart-shaped face looking out from her posts, and the gentle long-distance contact. Quite a shock to learn that one of us has left for good.
