Candles of the Darkest Nights
Dear candles of the darkest nights,
Look down from shores so far away,
And glow with cold and distant lights,
That cast your fairy shadows, fey.
Your tiny lamps in velvet vault,
Caress my world, as diamonds flashed
Your mighty shimmer to exalt,
And glimmer grandly, unabashed.
Sweet raven arc of sable sky,
My window on the universe,
Draw forth my thoughts, cause them to fly,
My poesy afar disperse.
Sometimes, I talk to the stars…
