The Lighted Window

The Lighted Window

A lighted window floats through the night
Like a piece of paper in the wind.

I want to see into it. I want to climb
Through into its lighted room.

As I reach for it it slips through the
Trees. As I chase it it rolls and tumbles
Into the air and skitters on through the
Night. . .



Poem The Lighted Window - Russell Edson
