Midnight Oil


“Street in Venice” by John Singer Sargent

Wish I was standing
on a street in Venice, Italy
waiting watch in empty alley
handsome dress stitched in the valley
like Tiger Lillies in little gallery
music drifts through open door
I burn and burn the midnight oil
illuminates the royal court
all is paid, no more toil
love never fades, it never spoils

story from Matthew 25:1-13
