Gothic Lullaby

Gothic Art

Blessed darkness, hide my tears,
Veil the light and drown my fears,
Once to pray and twice to weep,
Let no shade disturb this sleep.”

If death should reign in bitter rue,
Let no drop descend on you,
For pureness hath this bitter plight,
Sacrificed to bring back the light…


Author’s Note: Another poem from my currently unpublished novel, The Serpent’s Tale.  I realize the redundancy of saying “gothic” lullaby as by definition all lullabies carry a hint of the macabre and dark, but this one seemed more morbid than normal, and it is literally used as a lullaby.  The featured picture is located here.
