Lights at Night

to the south we see
the lights at night

it cheers us up 
      to see them   

   dim eyes do not
much like the dark

   don't work well
so we prefer light
or lights at night

   in darkest times
we want most lights

somehow this seems
just exactly right

in darkest winter
we celebrate with 
   bright colours 
   lighted patches

pushing back dark
warming something
      inside us

   in the coldest 
darkest nights
