Hunter\\'s Moon

entry picture

Came the cold and distant midnight

Tolling long bell steel and frost

Calling all to bide and cherish

Calling all who were cold and lost

Came the silk black wings of night

Came the moon birds sweetness calling

Feathering high upon their flight

Mercury stars fire flashing

Dashing

 As though to meet them

Beneath a hunter’s moon for light

 

In the silver bright extolling

Came there witch and wanton warlock

Dancing to the Sylvan music

Dancing to the song and pipe

Where whiten unicorn and dryad

And the tiny elfin fly

 

 

In the

 Gathering

In the circle upon the stone

Where she of no sin

Waits alone

Beneath the sky

 

Beneath the stars

 

Beneath

A Hunter’s Moon

A dark and powerful poem,reminiscent of The Raven, enigmatic and to follow that, a good belting from John.

What more could a girl wish for?

Thank you all one and all.

A dark and powerful poem. I love "calling all to bide and cherish" and the elves! We need more elvs in poetry! Maybe, Thermo, the "she of no sin" is a virgin about to be sacrificed? Hope not!

Very Atmospheric, enigmatic too, I am trying to imagine who ' She of no sin' is.
I am sure witches are more wanton than warlocks though lol ;-)

Belting, Augusta.
Reminiscent of The Raven in the rhythms and its understatement.
Don't know what's happening but it's got me shit-scared.
