~The Night~

 

Slayer of the day's turning

Darkness as to distrust

Soul mate with the shadows

Summoned to an endless journey;

In search of a tourney

Armed with its ghostly mail


Chained with un-chivalric spirit

Not a rider but a woeful stalker pained;

Blackened armor, gripped long spear

With broadsword as to decimate

Brightened days - dauntless task

Death to fading light - altar piece;

Ancient night artistically ordained

Paints the landscape - imaginary lines

Views of meadows and flowers disarrayed

Its work appears like an aged sage’s face;

Through the heaven’s womb

The night smothers the day

It whispers boastful fears

Eyes to wonder, tongues not to praise.
