- Arcanum Bride
A golden ring of oaths and solitaire,
resound of steeling knell and windy call;
angelical her face in streams of air;
my recklessness escorted on our knoll.
She fled amid the gray - transformed to drops;
above the fields consenting in her clouds;
Amid the dusky shades of tall tree tops,
Imparted lives, my solitude's fog shrouds;
Arcane her call, inviting knell, the bride
around my sentiments, henceforth, she orbed,
a quilt of nimbus covered me and cried,
my life became a bird, the skies absorbed.
She stared at me from far beyond, in dark;
unreal, she fled above the ringing field
with trumpets Angels pledged my ghostly barque,
that with betrothal vows, in Styx distilled.
In Acheronian lakes my spirit gleamed;
with thousand drops of rain where tears belong
she fled above the mists redeemed,
and crowned noctilucent moon's waxing wrong.
