‘Acquainted with the Night’ by Robert Frost. Read by newsoulmelody

Both happy and nervous to share the first recorded piece with you. Another chapter – poetry & thoughts recordings. They will be uploaded to my youtube channel and also here, so you can’t miss anything. I love it. I will continue.

‘Acquainted with the Night’ By Robert Frost is my favourite poem.
It first appeared in the Virginia Quarterly Review and was published in 1928 in his collection West-Running Brook.

I read it millions of times.
Walked at night billions of times.
I feel it.
I don’t believe it’s depressive. It’s full of poetic bitter-sweet sadness, full of deep thoughts and to move forward
…whatever happens.

The night is a special time when you don’t see unnecessaries. When the sun goes down and the lights go up – the colours are changed. The whole picture is changed.
Look at windows. Cosy yellowish light watches you from across the street. It is someone’s home. You can smell the delicious dinner. You can feel the sweetness of family connection.

The night is the time when you start thinking and feeling. The whole city slows down. Time for the loved ones.

But when you are outside, you feel like on another planet. It all different… and here is the time when you can travel deep inside yourself…

More thoughts and ideas than those which appear at night time?

…One luminary clock against the sky
Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.
