All the World Fallen Asleep


The pale Moon

Washes the trees with silver

In melancholy loveliness

I have tried for hours

To sleep and no luck

I lie in the dark

Tonight the shadows

Seem like everything

The total sky

My heart beats

Dancing to the rhythm

Of the rain

All the world fallen

Asleep – but me

Walking so carefully

Through the night

The moon is bright

And the stars are singing

Miserable and sleepy

At last I grow peaceful

Reaching into the darkness

Between the wild

And shapeless air

The mornings everywhere!

Reality and I have quarrelled. This is where I go so he can't find me, my Other Place. Here I can spin my Fancies and Fiction, as I wander among the Stars and listen as they whisper their secret to the moon. My name is Annie, I am lovely and lonely and I belong deeply to myself. I love cats, listening to the blues, the mountains more than the beach, being lazy, writing my fancies and fiction and I also love to crochet. That's me and this is my Other Place.
