A Charm For Sound Sleeping – Darkseed

they break the crystal of the sea
that smile for which my feelings sigh
this pain could teach us how to die

Your heart once left thus desolate
must fly at least from ease to hate
so many summer-flowers there
so many shadows love might share

Love’s image upon earth without it’s wings
i feel relief when sorrow flows
my days, so few, have passed below
dark tree, still sad…
grasped in holy hand
so beautyful shy, dark eyes…
last eve in beauty’s circle
let thy scattered shafts of light

Sleep at noon with branches overgrown
you can’t enliven dying man for god takes
