Treasure Island

Allen Steble

(20/04/1987)

(Mysteries in the mist)


Mysteries in the mist...
mysteries in the mist...
mysteries in the mist...

Dorment in the dark
sleeping in the shadows
haze consumes the parks
fog clouds the meadows
deep in the dark abyss
mysteries in the mist

Mysteries in the mist...
mysteries in the mist...
mysteries in the mist...

There is a mild blue light
where the horizon ends
a cold windy night
where curiosity pretends
a chilled empty kiss
on the lips of desperation

Mysteries in the mist...
mysteries in the mist...
mysteries in the mist...

Writings on the wall
that no man can understand
a quiet echo calls
from a cold distant land
hidden in the abyss
mysteries in the mist

Mysteries in the mist...
minds and eyes amiss...
mysteries in the mist..

    Very nice and soothing. On a misty day or night the sky takes
    on a dreamy look, the air feels soothing and thoughts of
    times past are remembered. deep in the dark abyss is an
    interesting line. (Report) Reply

    Yes this poem feels very much like a song. The words invite the reader to feel the chill of the cold night mist. And all the associated images of the imagination that come flowing in on a foggy cold night some where near the waters edge. Great poem and even better song lyric. (Report) Reply

    I like this poem very much - it has a wistful feel to it. To me it suggest that 'something is on the way'.

    It could even be a song lyric. (Report) Reply
