George Freek - One Poem

Alone In The Night
(After Lu Yu)

As I stare at the sky,
and the night deepens,
it seems like a hole
the stars fall into.
Trees wave like black
wands, and life moves on.
But it seems nearly over
before it’s begun. After
sixty years, that’s all I know.
I once had a cat,
and I also had a lover.
They died together.
I find I’m only able
to drink wine and laugh,
and I fear the future
will be just like the past.
