The night the lights went out...


Seven o'clock, an autum night
As darkness replaces the light
The sun goes down naturally,
The evening sky shines beautifully
With its pinks and blues...
The colorful hues..
It's autumn in the Catskills

As we gaze through the windows,
The lights begin to flicker...
The bulbs, dim to brown
There's sudden darkness all over town
Candace cries out, filled with fear
Nana says, "baby, your nana's here"
It's autumn in the Catskills

As one hour turns to two
I'm not sure just what to do
Trying to keep the child from crying
and inside I'm slowly dying..
My husband is not here and
I want to shed my own tears
It's autumn in the Catskills

I start to sing her a lullaby
I'd climb a mountain so she won't cry
She giggles up at me and says
"Nana.. can you see me?
And through the candlight I smiled
I stroked her cheek and said no doubt
It's autumn in the Catskills

Baby, it's autumn in the Catskills.

A well told story of love, care and protection, although we ourself may be afraid as well. What we do for the love of a child.

I like it a lot--even the colors. Your refrain is excellent.
Reviewed by Daniel McTaggart 9/28/2007
Lovely. Having family near the Catskills myself, I can feel the sun setting right now.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 9/27/2007
Expressed through the eyes and heart with love, in protection of a young one to keep the child from fear. A very well written, descriptive piece, enjoyed and could remember what happened the night the lights all went out....

Be safe,
Karen
