River by Night
The night has come and bright stars fill the sky
Arranged in lines and shapes from side to side
And gently light the things and men along
Creating moving shadows on the streets.
The quiet river flows under the bridge
And smell of fish is coming with the wind
While burbling water hits below the shore
Where boats are waiting for a new day’s dawn.
The pier is spanning all the river’s width
With lights on top of every single pile
That mirror on the sparkling water flow
And look like flames where least you would expect.
Two persons come from pier towards the shore,
A man and wife are walking down the street,
The long and busy day of work has passed
And just enjoy the night beneath the stars.
