Early Yesterday Morn

Early yesterday morn, 
Just before the coming, darkening storm,
While watching its preceding wind rustle the leaves,
I heard a constant whistling rendered through the eaves.

Whilst it’s piping breath filled my mind and ear,
Commingled with a whisper,
Seemingly neither far or near,
My eyes beheld something only described as specter. 
 
Standing just beyond the outer fringes of the moor, 
There seemed to be a shadow with a human contour;
Neither swaying with the buffeting gale
Or taking notice to me or the winds rising wail. 

For some length, motionless and undisturbed, 
I watched and pondered;
Strangely, rebelling against natural instinct, unperturbed:
Not in the least bit floundered.  

Early yesterday morn,
Just after the passing, dark storm,
While feeling faith and facing that that I abhor,
Myself ready for the burial of her I adore,
Whispery echoes of “I love you” whimsically soar,
To my ears, from the outer fringes of the moor.

    I think this is one of your best as well, I would add the darkness poem as well, I might even like it a bit more. Both are excellent work.

    Very nice Casey! You set the mood well, evocative of "The Raven" and other EAP works. Very haunting and romantic.

    Thank you for your words of kindness. I’m thoroughly and completely flattered for “ANYONE” to mention EAP in comparisons to my writings. I’m a big EAP fan and in no way try to emulate him; I just strive for some form of quality and do my best. I believe this to be my best one yet.
