As sable floats the shadowed night
I stand in true love's disrepair
beneath a host of haloed light
this lamp shines in the autumn air.

I stand in true love's disrepair,
of nuptials do my dreams now flow. 
This lamp shines in the autumn air
corona of an opal glow.

Of nuptials do my dreams now flow, 
my thoughts of crimson honeymoons.
Corona of an opal glow
now whispers vows and passioned runes.

My thoughts of crimson honeymoons,
beneath a host of haloed light,
now whisper vows and passioned runes
as sable floats the shadowed night.

Dale, the first thing I always do with a pantoum, is read the final stanza before moving on to the whole of the poem. If the final stanza doesn't read smoothly and flawless, the pantoum isn't a good one. But yours does deliver! It is beautiful, dark.

Well constructed Pantoum, which I love, reads so smoothly makes me shiver a little.

Kind of Murder In The Rue Morgue atmosphere.
