The train was full

The train was full

And as usual, there were a lot of sleeping people inside

And as usual, there were a lot of sleeping people inside

♫♫ Sleeping at last ♫♫

To Say Before Going To Sleep

a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke

I would like to sing someone to sleep,
have someone to sit by and be with.
I would like to cradle you and softly sing,
be your companion while you sleep or wake.
I would like to be the only person
in the house who knew: the night outside was cold.
And would like to listen to you
and outside to the world and to the woods.

The clocks are striking, calling to each other,
and one can see right to the edge of time.
Outside the house a strange man is afoot
and a strange dog barks, wakened from his sleep.
Beyond that there is silence.

My eyes rest upon your face wide-open;
and they hold you gently, letting you go
when something in the dark begins to move.

Really like the edit in #6 brings out the texture of everyone's jackets. Teresa giving away money? grinning
