Best Poem of Raymond Uyok

Serenade Sung In A Dark Hour

'Do not wonder who at your window knocked
This dark hour, thy parents soaked in sleep;
Though this same act once got a priest disfrocked;
I'm not daunted 'cause this love is deep, so deep;
Open this window and let me in there;
For nothing means much more than you tonight
To me; for I'm standing here on feet bare;
Let me in, for such will be my delight'

'Don't ponder how I leapt across the wall,
For if I had the chance, into your heart
Would I leap; though my fall woke almost all
The guards who only thought 'twas a cat;
The cat of the drunkard ...

The Black Scroll

In the shadows
of the night,
the vampire bats flew
to a colossal height,
Over the darkest deep
To meet him, their master
as he waits
with his sanguinary skull

[Hata Bildir]
