After Dark

 
AFTER DARK

Once
more
the storm
is howling.
Angry are the sounds
carried through the darkness of night.
Battered and beaten
she waits for
morning
to
come.

Written for Poetic Bloomings #121: Seed Lines (using the opening line of another’s poem as the starting point for my poem).  Also shared at “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2013.”

“Once more the storm is howling” is the opening line of A Prayer for My Daughter, By William Butler Yeats. Read his full poem, here: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poem/3838.
