Villanelle: Martin-Pecheur, the Fisher King



Walk not dark alleys nor the dim-lit lane
Darkless suns lighten not the skin in vain
Cry not « Help! » « Help! » lest you be thought insane

Stand not your ground in the land guns profane
Hark! the voice struggling through ageless pain
Walk not dark alleys nor the dim-lit lane

Think not who will keep vigil high on vane
Winds echo myriad voices with rain
Cry not « Help! » « Help! » lest you be thought insane

Seek not to proclaim your forefathers’ bane
Your pathetic looks of sufferance contain
Walk not dark alleys nor the dim-lit lane

Your life you bartered for a head sans mane
Who thought well he had everything to gain
Cry not « Help! » « Help! » lest you be thought insane

Towards which Red Star* must spirit emplane
When your King his son wishes you ordain
Walk not dark alleys nor the dim-lit lane
Cry not « Help! » « Help! » lest you be thought insane

• Martin-Pêcheur: French for « kingfisher »; here the Fisher King

* Red Star: Red dwarfs in our Milky Way where some 60 billion planets circulating them
could likely support life.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
