Quiescent Night

Quiescent night
Sanctified night
Ubiquitous calm
Ubiquitous light
Round yon virgin matriarch and child
Sanctified neonate tender and mild
Sleep in empyrean peace
Sleep in empyrean peace

I Saw You

At the state fair I espied
You on a ride
You didn't try to hide

At the zoo I caught a glimpse
Of you by the chimps
You liked the one that limps

At the art museum I did discern
You with a look of concern
By a Grecian urn

But in the end I did not detect you
Anywhere I should not expect to
Now I know I was incorrect to
Follow you around
I bet that's why you frowned
When you saw me
