tender is (the night)

by theuglyearring

1. Though the dull brain perplexes and retards:
Already with thee! tender is the night,
And haply the Queen-Moon is on her throne,
Cluster’d around by all her starry Fays
But here there is no light,
Save what from heaven is with the breezes blown
Through verdurous glooms and winding mossy ways.
~Ode to a Nightingale, John Keats

2. “Rosemary was a ‘simple’ child she was protected by a double sheath of her mother’s armor and her own – she had a mature distrust of the trivial, the facile and the vulgar.”
Tender is the Night, F. Scott Fitzgerald

3.  Tender is the marlin spike,
Tender is the sea,
Tender the London Fog
That Befalls to Me
~ 30th Chorus, Mexico City Blues, Jack Kerouac

4.  Tender are the hunters, tender is the night
When they hold each other tight
Tender
Tender are the undercover
~Tender is the night, Jackson Browne
