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.

“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.
