Come Night These Eves, Villanelle - Poem by Captain Cur

Come night these eves I count you long ago
years breathed in by the cold nostrils of time
memories lost in sunset's burning glow.

Setting fast though the spectrum colors slow
spanning wings death's bright archways soon arise
come night these eves I count you long ago.

Gates and paths these drifting rings bestow
life streams rushing where heart and thought collide
memories lost in sunset's burning glow.

In this wealth of light penchant and alone
my spirit walks and haltingly replies
come night these eves I count you long ago.

Terrified by the beauty that's unknown
I pass a torch extinguishing my mind
memories lost in sunset's burning glow.

Carried by windless sails that ever blow
I retreat from a world that once was mine
come night these eves I count you long ago
memories lost in sunset's burning glow.

Form: villanelle
