A Voice In The Night [Natalie's Husband]

from A Promise by The Chairman Dances



The voice came to you and it dragged you up and out of your sleep; led you down the stairs and out the door; the moon left its light at your feet. The notes were calm and clear. Your eyes were dewy. You were asking, what could the stars sewn in the sky tonight mean for us? It came to me much the same. I heard it first on our wedding day, as the children blushed and mothers wept (our fathers, bored, were looking away): the voice was plain and loud, it split this faithless man right down the center. But the stars sewn in the sky that night showed us something better. The voice came to you and it dragged you up and out of your sleep. But it left you, then it left us both, your garland lay unstrung at your feet. Oh, the talk is sharp and cruel. The worst of us is all we show now, as we gaze, dewy-eyed, at those grievous clouds.
