The fort

I am a jagged rock on which the day plays
sometimes a calm morning melody
sometimes an aurulent dusky symphony
Green hanging boughs tease these shores
lapping waves knock on my closed doors
As the day recedes into a horizon afar
I remain in my groove, watching night
spread her mellow blanket of stars
