Sound of Midnight~





Sound of midnight fills the sky
Satin-opaque lullaby
Wind-song, vagrant and footloose
Slipping from moon-spangled noose
To ramble night’s argent hall
Spreading silence like a shawl
Save for sighing evergreen
Waving its four-season sheen
As fresh moments fall away
Jetty on ebony quay
Smooth and still its sonnets spill
Moon-halo, opiate trill
Tempest torn from its rampart
Waging, raging in the heart
And the air, tattooed with dark
Petrifies the snowflake spark
Amplifying somber hush
As a thousand echoes rush
Where sound of midnight fills the deep
And we would miss if fast asleep
