The trees, they wave their naked fingers,
black against the velvet black,
and in the distance, citylights linger,
light upon the darkness they stack.
And on the river, a ship slides silently by,
its lights just emphasize the night,
the clouds add darkness to darkness -
a study of darkest dark and lightest light.
