Night's Annual Wake

Blithe notes of Twilight's symphony alight Into occluded abyss spindled cords take flight Duller shades into harmonious bands unite Grainy film spreads o'er recess a dank, dingy kite Initiating eve's wake, ethereal blinds shut tight Midnight's, chilling vigil stills darkened night Nyx's, silver, pale orb mystical procession doth ignite Twinkling pallbearers on flanks shoulder the blight Ghostly-white planets from distant corridors observe rite Pleiades' sisters' glowing blue embers provide candlelight On bended knee, Perseus the glib eulogy doth recite In the somber parlor, Orion with satin bow stalkers doth fight Tears from Aquarius's drawn bucket salve Night's dreary plight Mystical beams from Southern Cross emptiness doth requite
