Edge of Night

The dark caress of ravens flight Graze the tips of distant clouds Where moonbeams touch the edge of night And mystery slips behind a shroud A violin mourns with pain And echoes through the ebon realm Notes adrift with sad refrains Scatter emotions which overwhelm Two hands of the clock slowly merge As midnight bells begin to ring From the darkness ravens emerge Cawing as they flap their wings These harbingers of death and gloom Such dark fears they do incite With glint of iridescent plume As moonbeams touch the edge of night »» 2-24-18

I love this dark mysterious mood you created with your poem, Joseph. Love the title too. WAsn't it an AMerican soap opera title?

A deep poem Joseph and full of imagery. I can almost see the ravens emerging from the clock as the midnight hour strikes- but perhaps the moonbeams will allay the foreboding...Maria
