Silent Night

a poem by Christuraj Alex

“The summer night is still and sweet
With flowers on every tree
Peace comes to them on quiet feet”
Whose hearts, like sages, so free

Balsams just like purple-dark stars
Shining as though from the floor
Glowworm-bubbles as if from Mars
Knocking the night angels door

Mingled with the breeze so charming
Moody melancholic minds
Happiness-filled and hearts warming
Singing litanies of saints

Beggars, refugees, and dogs stray
Seem to sleep so peacefully
Somewhere in some land far away
Lullabies heard leisurely
