The day is past, the sun is set,
And the white stars are in the sky;
While the long grass with dew is wet,
And through the air the bats now fly.
The lambs have now lain down to sleep,
The birds have long since sought their nests;
The air is still ; and darks, and deep
On the hill side the old wood rest.
Yes, of the dark I have no fear,
But feel as safe as when it's light;
For I know God is with me there,
And He will guard me through the night,
For God is by when I pray,
And when I close mine eyes in sleep,
I know that He will with me stay,
And will all night watch by me keep,
For He Who rules the stars and sea,
Who makes the grass and trees to grow,
Will look on a poor child like me,
When on my knees I to Him bow.
He holds all things in His right hand,
The rich, the poor, the great, the small;
When we sleep,or sir, or stand,
Is with us, for He loves us all...

Six quatrain, iambic quadrameter, rhyming couplets, plenty of imagery. Excellent.
I write poems too. Maybe I will post them tomorrow. I gotta go now.

I'm a nighttime girl, but I have noticed men like to do it in the morning. Is it an "energy" thing?

When I was younger it didn't seem to matter when I drank coffee. I could happily enjoy a cup after the evening meal. Now it seems any caffiene after three o'clock in the afternoon and I'm wide eyed and bushy tailed well...
