Good Night a Poem for a Loved One

Good night!

                                            But if you wake before the dawn

                                            And feel a presence by your bed,

                                             Fear not, for I have sent my heart

                                            To guard your sleeping in my stead.

La Grande Odalisque - Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres

                                   Sent also, these my hands to you,

                                   To wrap the ceiling, walls and floor

                                     In steel-strong filamemtal gauze

                                   To seal your window and your door,

 

Odalisque - Pablo Picasso
Odalisque - Pablo Picasso

                                               Lest witchcraft and malign intent

                                      Should breach the chamber where you sleep.

                                                 And also have I sent my eyes

                                        To watch you through the night… and keep

 

The Christ Child asleep - Bartolome Murillo
The Christ Child asleep - Bartolome Murillo

                                   You safe. My heart; My hands; My eyes;

                                      But one thing more, my breath I send,

                                           To blow away unwanted dreams,

                                             So let you gently rest, my friend.

The next time I'm on FaceBook, I'll send a message to my chums Pablo and Jean-Auguste. They'll be well pleased.

Thank you Randy for coming to have a peek. I thought something a bit pleasant instead of a succubus under the bed, Yeah?

Wow you have very high falutin fb friends. All of mine are... well alive and stuff. I can't help but think of Fuseli's Nightmare painting now... thanks.

How about you adding a melody to this one?I'm absolutely positive that this will be a very nice lullaby. Beautiful!

Randy, you are such a clever person. I had to look up Fuseli's Nightmare painting. I hadn't even heard of it, but strangely enough i had already added it to the folder, and was going to use it, but used the more middle ground one of the hands from under the bed.

I feel quite ill educated sometimes when people know about things like Fuseli's Nightmare painting... but at least, as Lady Wordsmith says, HP is a place to not only write, but to learn.

Melody??? Theseus, I have only managed to put pictures and text into my hub... music wold be beyond me. You'll be expecting me to put a video of my declaiming my timeless poetry next!

Only joking... Thank you coming and reading again. I look forward to your comments.

A melody to accompany your beautiful lyrics would be good. A video of it would be a bonus... lol

Kidding aside, this is such a beautiful piece that I can't help but hope that this would be made into a song. I will volunteer to sing it.haha.


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Theseus, I have just gone back and read it, and there is such a strict rhythm in there if anybody wanted to put a melody to it.

OK, you've got the job, you the singer... Now, who can write the tune?


theseus profile image

theseus 5 years ago from philippines

As for who will put a melody to it, I'm sure there is someone in HP who can do the works. vocalcoach can do it.

I can carry a tune, I can guarantee it but I don't think that we can sell even a single copy if I would be the singer so if we want to make this a profitable one, we better find someone who can more than just carry a tune.haha.

The pictures really are perfect, aren't they. I'm loving it when I get the right ones to compliment the poem. I actually wrote that poem about four years ago and sent it as I wrote it as a text message. I must be crazy.

But the friends I have are worth it.

I should imagine that when you are doing something repetitive, which you understand well, it it like painting skirting boards for a DIYer... such as I was. The mind runs along and has rhythms and little poems and repeating phrases... Is that the way it works for you?

Let me point out that I never painted a skirting board, I'm a varnish man.

Ian, you surprise me - a bit hedonistic, if I have to judge by images. Beautifully written, by the way.

Is nudity allowed on Hubpages? One can never tell. (Adult content). I was going to write a piece on emotional nakedness (well, I did, on paper this time, given my limited access to internet), but then I thought... it would be frowned upon.

Maybe I need a guardian angel for emotional nakedness... It sounds so awful.


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Hello, Svetlana. Nothing would surprise me with HubPages. I wrote a poem some times back which rambles along in the way my verse rambles until it gets to the last word. This word is possibly the foulest word in the English language, so I cannot publish the "poem", in case it offends (It's bound to) but it is the punch line to the piece, so I will have to miss out on the fun of publishing it.

I hope you get your computer sorted out soon. I am still suffering with my chest infection... I spent half of last night standing up, sitting up, or trying to sleep propped up by a pile of cushions... I am not a happy bunny.

The time before last they kept me in Hospital for ten days.

Emotional nakedness sounds like a great hub. I hope you are "brave" enough to publish it.


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

Sorry to hear that. I hope you will feel better soon. I don't know what comforts you - these days I feel it hard to find comfort in anything. Just pain, so acute, there are no words. I feel so empty.

I am trying to find balance. I made a decision to make changes. Not overnight, but try and stick with my decisions. It is so hard at the moment.

Probably two anchors I am grateful for - dancing and writing. If I feel I have to go out and be insane, I go dancing, if I have enough time, I can express myself in writing.

I read this "Emotional Nakedness" - I am lying to myself - I cannot unveil what is inside. I don't know myself, my mind protects me from my pain so lovingly and so completely.

It is not about bravery, I was thinking "Is it worth it?" But I have time, "no news on my computer" and this temporary access is a headache.

So, I wish you a quick recovery and better days and I will try to come and read your poems as frequently as can.


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

I must stop putting poetry on the Hub. It is just pure self indulgence, Hardly anything is new, and apart from that I am using up my very meagre stock. I am about one third through my complete output, and what would my public say if I had nothing to offer (ha ha)... apart from drawing a collective breath, and then releasing it in a great sigh,

I'm so glad that you have your dancing to "fall back on" (no pun intended). Keep happy if you can, and try to read something a little less depressing... You are SO Russian!!!

Fondest regards,

Ian


kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

I hope you feel better, Ian. I thought you write still - how about your poetry club? Well, it is your decision - whatever makes you happy.

I don't really think about my public - I have no public, I have you and a few other people. I started reading a very nice book "On Writing Well" by William Zinsser.

Apart from other advice, very sound I might add (correction, remove "might", if you "might add", just add it, LOL. You see, I started editing myself and it is only day 2). So, he suggests keeping true to yourself an maintaining your own voice, public will follow if it likes you. Another very encouraging news - don't compare yourself with other published and more successful authors, they are not necessarily better. It is interesting book, a classic in a sense. ("In a sense" - nonsensical, it means nothing, remove, LOL).

Am I SO Russian? I do consider myself to be fairly atypical. Atypical everything. "Emotional nakedness" is what I wrote myself after I was told that I am emotionally deprived. Starving for love. It was so shockingly painful. It is hard to accept, but I assume it must be true because it hurts so much inside.

I cried and wrote it crying, but then (I cannot cry for 24/7), I went on. Trying to understand yourself is so difficult, but I am determined to do the work. That is where literature is not the answer. Dostoevsky can write about all the pain in the world and I might agree or not, but it won't help me recognize what is wrong with me and how to change.

I switched to reading non-fiction and self-help books with guidance, of course. Anyway, I veered off. There are a lot of things that HAVE to be taken care of and they require knowledge that I lack. Believe me, most Canadians and Russians that I know - they are so not me, I am an odd bird. A White Crow? (that is a Russian expression).

Hoping that you will feel better and find the motivation to write occasionally,


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Of course I will find the motivation to write occasionally. But only occasionally, Svetlana? Right now I feel very lethargic. I think it must be the antibiotics. They always get me that way.

The book "On Writing Well" by William Zinsser, sounds really good sense. I like that about not trying to copy style. Too many people do that and everything becomes so middle of the road and bland or else one begins to know when a particular turn of phrase is trotted out as if it is a thoroughbred racing filly, and turns out to be a worn out donkey (not that I dislike donkeys; I love them) and who wants one of those in a novel (I do!!!)

I'm going off to relax and do nothing (as usual) and hope my battery charger will work on me... It does wonders for my mobile phone, but I have yet to plug myself in.)

kallini2010 profile image

kallini2010 5 years ago from Toronto, Canada

I do agree, it's a killer - when you watch a movie and know from the very beginning how it is going to end. Cliché sits on cliché and uses cliché to keep everything moving...

I tried to sound moderate in encouraging you. It does not matter what I say, when inspiration strikes, there is nothing you can do but write. What motivates you? It might remain a mystery for others, maybe even for you, but it will keep motivating you.

It should be fire within. Even when you rest, maybe even more when you rest, your subconscious continues writing.

I was contemplating this "emotional Niagara Falls" and then I decided to write about names, the piece or rather series that have been on my mind forever. Since I have written the hub about my name. It takes time. I decided not to be concerned about statistics - I don't earn any money here. I write for myself. It is an art and a craft to be mastered. It is not about mass production.

So, Ian, rest and enjoy every moment that can be enjoyed. I am afraid I used my time limit (again!) - back to the wireless world (wireless as in DISCONNECTED!)


Doug Turner Jr. 5 years ago

I'm always late for the parties, even ones featuring classic nudes and august lines of poetry.

The last stanza offers a great sense of closure without seeming contrived. The end just sort of ambushes the reader and leaves them pondering that final image of being cared for while sleeping.

As for the nudes... well, I understand why we've all been staring at them for hundreds of years. Peace.

So nurturing, Ian. It befits your spirit. Did I tell you I think I'm in love? Oh, yes - that was when we first met! :-) But you naughty boy! You shouldn't be sharing my pictures with just everyone! :-)


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Hello, my lovely friend. You said you didn't mind who I shared them with so long as they showed you in a good light, and I thought the light at the Louvre was absolutely perfect.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS

Well, humph. (still scowling a bit) - But since you put it that way. . . :-)

Perhaps we didn't fully clarify what "in a good light" means to a timid blossom such as myself. So may I assume that you're monitoring the prospective viewers? Almost anyone with the fare to Paris can get in the place, you know. I wouldn't want just ANYONE gazing. . . . There may even be some unscrupulous oglers reading this thread! If so - you know who you are, you rascals! :-) But - - I will try to feel reassured ~


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

I have stipulated that so long as they form an orderly queue, and pay the required viewing fee, I am not particularly worried. If you would like to don your black peaked cap and take the Euros and hand out the tickets, I don't mind. You can even add a percentage for yourself if you like.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS

Oh, no, no, Ian. A decent woman cannot accept payment, nor even gratuities, for this kind of - er - activity.

But the black peaked cap might be appropriate, just to allow me to be on hand there and survey the queue as they move along into and around the Louvre, viewing all the - ahem - sights it affords. Even random sampling of the viewers would be useful. Besides, it's been too long since I was in Paris! How I miss Montmartre, especially this time of year.

But under no circumstances would I be involved in any exchange of Euros or any other type filthy lucre for this particular viewing. (There is a limited engagement of my likenesses there, before they go back into their vault, is there not?)

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

I told you that my life is a little out of the ordinary, didn't I? I didn't tell you that someone gave me an apartment in Chateau Rouge, Paris once. Can you imagine it? Gave me! And I used it once.

I should write is into a hub... or do I just make it one of those "in parenthesis" incidents in my strange life?


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS

I vote for writing it into a hub, by all means! I'm dying with curiosity, but I wouldn't want to spoil the hub by asking for more of the background, the one use of it and about its ultimate disposal, if any. I can only imagine! But I'll try to contain my urgent need to know till you write it!!!


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Nellie, you must know how memories come flooding in and then parenthetically other memories are dragged in and suddenly one's mind is going off in all directions. You are capable of writing reams and reams . quickly, elegantly and well, whereas I write slowly, and I can feel all these little situations and story lines shouting, "Me! Me! What about me? Can't you remember when..." and I get so overwhelmed that I eventually do a Scarlett O'Hara and leave it till tomorrow.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS

Me, too. Yes I write reams quickly - but many are barely focused on a major project, because my true project really is largely unfocused, so it's routinely fragmented in ways, except for the byways it takes. That's my challenge, and, of course - choice. I must own it.

But you could do it. Scarlett will not protect you. Besides, you'd look absurd in a hoop skirt.

If some details beg for attention, let'm. Just WRITE. It will be dazzling. What you do write always has an aura and an ambience of magic. What more do you want? Don't be greedy. hehe Each of us has a special talent. But stopping them up will not allow them. It is not my push for it that counts. It's that one you feel fomenting inside. :-) I will (have to) accept it either way. Your muse is more demanding.


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

How lovely, Nellie. Fine words to encourage the vaguely incorrigible. My mind, right now, wants to simply shut down and take care of my body. I know I've said it before, but I ave seldom felt so ill.


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

And you're right. That crinoline that Mammy made up out of the green velvet curtains certainly wouldn't have suited me. Fiddle de dee, Mt Butler, Sir.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS

And Mammy would have been fussing at you for going out in the night air without your shawl and getting sick, no doubt. Nevermind the unhealthy repercussions of the tightly laced up whalebone corset on your system! Crinolines, by the way, are the stiffly starched gauzy initial layer of petticoats over the hoop, building toward the outer layer, - not the whole costume, any more than a hoop skirt is. See how ill it's made you and how giddy taxes are making me? We've forgotten the protocol of proper Southern ladies' get-ups.

I did think the green velvet curtains turned out rather well as one, though. Those "patterns in the attic" of MIss Ellen's which Mammy was instructed to go fetch must have been quite spectacular! Why, Walter Plunkett and the entire costume and wardrobe department at David O. Seltnick's studio couldn't have done a more magnificent job!

Be that as it may, I, as Doctor Mom, am instructing YOU to "simly shut down and take care of" your body, young man! I'm not at all pleased that this siege has lasted so long and been so fierce. Fiddle-de-de, indeed!!

Hugs.

Go on, Nellie, stretch that last comment into a hub. I dare you. Your fans (of which there are legion) would be taken aback and then clamour for more. It's clever, it's tongue in cheek' it brilliant.

And if the following doesn't feature, then there is nothing fair in this world: "I did think the green velvet curtains turned out rather well as one, though. Those "patterns in the attic" of Miss Ellen's which Mammy was instructed to go fetch must have been quite spectacular! Why, Walter Plunkett and the entire costume and wardrobe department at David O. Seltnick's studio couldn't have done a more magnificent job!"


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS

hehe. Thank you, dear Ian. I do better extemporaneously being tongue in cheek and brilliant than in writing prose for publication, I guess. Perhaps I can devise a story in which a character uses that comment. I do better spontaneously than by dare, too - though that doesn't mean I am not lured by the challenge. It's just that the results are more likely to be disappointing to both darer and daree. hehe Hugs.

I have a short(ish) bit of writing that I would like to put onto HP. It isn't nearly as long as 'Have You Heard the Mondscheinsonate?', but it's about 3,300 words. I want it to stand on its own merits and am thinking of putting it on without any pictures, having read Pamela N Red's excellent hub: Free Pictures for Your Blog.

Maybe I'll wait till tomorrow, I was going to bed hours ago, and I fiddled and tweaked.

Hi Ian,

I loved reading your poem. Relished it very much. It flows like a river of joy.

Oh, by the way, Walekum Assalam, my new friend. 'Om Shanti' is a loving gesture that we Indians normally say while greeting. In spirituality, it's a feeling of bliss to say it. But then again, Humanity is above. Yes, 'Om Shanti Om' is a movie too. So you like Bollywood? Glad to know. What a joy to know you! Much Love and Peace.


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 9 months ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Yes, I looked up 'Om Shanti', and I like it. In fact, I looked up the translations of both, just for interest's sake, and W ikipedia or whatever, gave the same meaning for both.

How very nice.
