Eyes entranced in the lustre of eternal nightfall;
passion of the Witch broods in forests dark'n wanton
Raven hair black as coal, bathes in winds hallowed
Arcane Moon beckons thirst of tongue
Flamed breath — her blood song feasts stars & sky
Magick befalls in shadowy mists of spectral rain
Serpents rise like waves of liquid ivy,
as her soul wallows in the rapture of Winter's pain

O'er Earth and stone, ravenous streams bequest
— twilight of dreams and sweet flesh
Enchanted in nocturnal fields, I lust evermore…
Like velvet wine, the river ebbs and flows,
unto dark magick of her soul, shall be the lore



Arthur Crow © 2012
This is a tribute to all my pagan brothers and sisters... and to what we did 13 days after the Full - thank you.

Spooky! I find it very interesting that witching hour is a time of supernatural anxiety and yet this poem reads so smoothly and calm. I am not familiar with pagan tradition, but who is the narrator or the voice of the poem?

Thank you, your response is more than I could hope for.
A strange tale is this one - the narrator being myself :)

Your imagery here, and the way you weave the words together... It's so beautiful! This poem reminds me of one of my closest friends, as she's pagan. Amazing work! :D

Thank you most kindly. I'm a pagan myself, so writing
in this flavor is a lot of fun. I plan to do much more
of it in the next few weeks.

An interesting blend of words, and a slightly archaic touch to it, with O'er and unto.
Short, succinct, and an interesting snippet.
