Minstrel’s Lullaby


Complexion of starlight and

hair cut from the cloth of night,

her eye ever-watching me.

Cold as the bitter chill,

only she has warmed my body.

I’ve serenaded the women

of this world,

with her as my only muse;

a siren that sings

to my heart and wrecks my soul.

I have grown to love

the emptiness she cherishes—

silence our binding vow.

Time approaches,

she dons her amber pendant.

It’s glow burning her

once more.

I too,

will rest—

until tonight.
