Grass EXAMPLE’S OF SIDMAN’S I grow in places POEMS others can’t, where wind is high and water scant. I drink the rain, Welcome to the Night I eat the sun; To all of you who crawl and creep, who buzz and chirp and hoot and peep, before the prairie winds who wake at dusk and throw oﬀ sleep: I run. Welcome to the night. I see, I sprout, I grow, I creep, To you who make the forest sing, who dip and dodge on silent wing, and in the ice who ﬂutter, hover, clasp, and cling: and snow, I sleep. Welcome to the night! On steppe or veld Come feel the cool and shadowed breeze, or pampas dry, come smell your way among the trees, come touch rough bark and leathered beneath the grand, enormous sky, leaves: Welcome to the night. I make my humble, bladed bed. The nights a sea of dappled dark, the nights a feast of sound and spark, And where there’s level ground, the nights a wild, enchanted park. I spread. Welcome to the night!
