Sure On This Shining Night
Poetry by: James Agee (1909-1955),
Pulitzer Prize-winning author, poet and screenwriter

Sure on this shining night
Of star made shadows round,
Kindness must watch for me
This side the ground.

The late year lies down the north.
All is healed, all is health.
High summer holds the earth.
Hearts all whole.

Sure on this shining night
I weep for wonder
Wand’ring far alone
Of shadows on the stars
