Poetry Friday: Alien by George William (A.E.) Russell

August 14th, 2015 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: contemplative
Current Song: The X-Files score music by Mark Snow

Dark glowed the vales of amethyst
Beneath an opal shroud:
The moon bud opened through the mist
Its white-fire leaves of cloud.

Through rapt at gaze with eyes of light
Looked forth the seraph seers,
The vast and wandering dream of night
Rolled on above our tears.

- Alien by George William (A.E.) Russell

The lines that resonates with me:
The vast and wandering dream of night
Rolled on above our tears.
