Night's Bleary Dirge

Pale orb the bleary wake incites Pallid streams procession ignites Twilight's caravan gives last beams flight Deep browns, oranges funerary pyre light Glare from Day's spent hours moon's spawning rays spite Day's face shares last glint then bier shutters tight Into gray abyss Helios's flaming spirit doth kite In ethereal corridor veiled remnants with chilling vapors slight Night's doleful dirge; sprightly pallbearers shoulder blight In vapid sanctuary, a jading stillness appends eerie rite Nyx's strobe earth's dimmed floor with shadows doth requiet Sidling tributaries in contrite cadence blink at earth's plight Slow rhythms of Nyx's bleating requiem soul's sleep doth invite
