In the Late Night
<br><br><center>*Love is a lonely pursuit.*
― Wyatt B. Pringle, Jr.</center>


<br><br><center>![Albert Maignan   La muse verte Green Muse.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmS1sZiMYcLtyecEiRy9kNZj8RPp7DRHjf8DvUgjxxYKa7/Albert%20Maignan%20%20%20La%20muse%20verte%20Green%20Muse.jpg)</center>


<br><br><center>In the late night
When the Moon has gone to bed,

<br>A sudden autum storm
Breaks out above my head.

<br>The rain comes down
And lightning flares again,

And trees outside
Start boiling in the wind.

<br>Then the house goes still
and the air goes dead,

And I hear your words
Echo in my head;

<br>And I want to wake you up
Admit where I went wrong,

But excuses rise again
Like the refrain in a song.

<br>It's useless to deny
The truth of your complaints,

And harder to comply
When it's so damn hard to change.</center>

You, John, have a way of wresting comments out of me at times...

That's a good thing, please understand! Of course I mean that a line or two of your poetry has hit the nerve of one of my buried realities. In this case, the recognition of guilt overlaid by the awareness of my near-immutability...

Thank you, my friend!

😄😇😉

Immutability - takes me back to my theology days at The Pontifical Institute, lol - something I never attempted to even presume for myself, although I have detected it in others who are practically perfect in every way and imperfect only in the sense they chose me :)

Ah, but it is my failings that at times appear to me immutable! :(
