Acquainted with the Night

March 21, 2012 Rasel Rana 0 Comments

I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain -- and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.


I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.


I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,


But not to call me back or say good-bye;
And further still at an unearthly height,
A luminary clock against the sky


Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.


Robert Frost
