The Darkest Hour

The Darkest Hour

A Poem by Carissa Faulk

The darkest hours of the night
are those before the dawn.
The quietest, too, are they
when the earth gasps for a ray of light.
The moon has fled, the stars fade,
and the whole earth holds its breath, waits.
And everything is silent,
and for once the spinning earth is bade
to be still. And I listen, here,
for in the darkest hour Your voice is clear,
for, for once, it is silent here.
