Evening darlings 

Haven’t posted for a while now. I guess when you work with texts and ads all day, there’s not much to put on the paper in the evening. All I want is to be quiet, to enjoy my time at the gym, listen to good music and cook something tasty. Go to sleep early and have a good night sleep (doesn’t happen very often..) So many ideas running through my head every time when I get to bed.. So this is not my poem, but I received it tonight by my Allo poem subscription & I think it’s quite amazing and right on time for me. Enjoy!

The Heart of a Woman, a poem by Georgia Douglas Johnson

The heart of a woman goes forth with the dawn,

As a lone bird, soft winging, so restlessly on,

Afar o’er life’s turrets and vales does it roam

In the wake of those echoes the heart calls home

The heart of a woman falls back with the night,

And enters some alien cage in its plight,

And tries to forget it has dreamed of the stars

While it breaks, breaks, breaks on the sheltering bars
