INTO THE NIGHT

Into the Night my thoughts are sped Into the realm of Dream After the sun's last rays have fled And all the stars do gleam Fast in the Dark, my weary head Is soothed by a stray moonbeam Dragons of Sleep appear above Swallowing up the skies Lorelei whisper dreams of love -- Lilting, alluring lies -- Deep in a secret moonlit grove I close my longing eyes When in the Night my thoughts are sped Phantasmal forms arise Daemons alight beside my bed Shifting their shapes before my eyes When I'm among the quick and dead I still shall dread their cries Into the Nether-world of Night Adrift on a starlit sea Crystalline vistas fill my sight As cold arms encompass me Awash on a sunneless wave of light I hasten to Fate's decree Now does the hand of Peace descend Now does the moon burn red Now is the hour when mem'ries blend With visions of Hope and Dread Alone in the Night, my gentle friend I bend my star-crossed head
