Sweet sky...

That Hour

by Karin Boye

No breathless summer night sky
reaches so far into eternity,
no lake, when mists lighten,
mirrors such stillness
as that hour -

when loneliness's limits are effaced
and the eyes become transparent
and the voices become simple as winds
and there is nothing more to hide. 
How can I now be afraid?
I shall never lose you.
