From Midnight's Keep
by Michael H. Hanson

She calls to me from somewhere near,
some quiet place I cannot hear
singing a whisper so gently
it barely tickles my pale ear.

She calls to me when I'm asleep,
when snuggling snores and murmurs creep,
chanting to me from midnight's keep
upon the willowy wind's sweep.

She calls to me, demure siren
from shores both lonely and barren,
enticing with a tepid tone
smooth as an ancient polished stone.

Perhaps she's born of secret scrolls
and silent dreams that touch men's souls
with dark magics no mortal knows
beyond the power of mere prose
where all of eternity glows
with the gravity of rainbows.
