Journals Of An Unknown Gentleman


'Twas a night of raging rain
My searing temples, sleep refrained!
Thence I sighed, 'Death is nigh! '
Whilst dark rain neighed his war-cry.

Anon I had a fleeting vision
Of a haggard man, glum and musing,
A parched quill pining to drown in ink
And a candle illumining barren parchments.

A balm it proved to my throes
Unease allayed, I eased to sleep.
Quite a start the morn did gift
For on my quilt, lo! a diary lay!

Whence I found that queer chronicle
Of an unknown gentleman, I know not!
Neither can I, an artless plebeian
Make sense of the wretched ravings.

Wouldst thou then, O wise wayfarer,
Hearken to the phantasms of the nameless?
And pray, enlighten me, O wise wayfarer
On these reflections of the anonymous.

P.S - The aforementioned poem serves as a prologue to a work titled 'Journals Of An Unknown Gentleman', published in my blog, 'Rain ~ Ideas & Idylls Of An Idle Idealist'. Kindly visit the blog (link available in my 'PoemHunter' profile) so that the verse may be understood in its entirety. Thanking you.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
