Night Song

It's a dark blue velvet night,

Far away across the town, a flicker of light.
 Deep in the forest, the melancholy song of solitude
  Weeps her tears of diamond, her ribbons of moon.
It's a dark blue velvet night,
The clouds have hidden all the stars
Except one that glitters, keeping up the fight
Like an invisible rainbow, healing all the scars.
