I have been one acquainted with the night. I have walked out in rain -- and back in rain. I have outwalked the furthest city light.



The skyline of Downtown Austin, Texas as seen from atop Mount Bonnell.

I had planned on doing some star photography for the first time but mother nature thought other wise, it was thick with clouds the entire time I was in Austin that weekend. Maybe next time.

If you're ever in Austin, make sure you check this place out, it has great views of east and west Austin.

Acquainted with the Night

I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain -- and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.

I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.

I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,

But not to call me back or say good-bye;
And further still at an unearthly height,
A luminary clock against the sky

Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.
