The night is light and chill,

Stars are awake in the sky,

There’s a cloud over the moon;

Round the house on the hill

The wind creeps with its cry

Between a wail and a croon.


I hear the voice of the wind,

The voice of the wind in the night,

Cry and sob and weep,

As the voice of one that hath sinned

Moaning aloud in its might

In the night when he cannot sleep.


Sleep? No sleep is about.

What remembering sin

Wakes and watches apart?…

The winds wails without,

And my heart is wailing within,

And the wind is the voice of my heart.
