Words Softly Spoken

Nighttime beckons,
Words softly spoken.

Nightingale, an ode
By poet Keats.
Like a rose awaiting morn,
His kiss a drop of dew.

Eyes flutter, sleep awaits.
His voice
Embraces me, pillowed with dreams.

Sweet dreams as you listen to Benedict Cumberbatch's divine reading of "Ode to a Nightingale" by John Keats, the inspiration for this poem. (YouTube upload courtesy of xXWeGotCharacterXx.)
