Ode To Fear

Rating: 2.9

Variation on a Theme by Collins

Let the day glare: O memory, your tread
Beats to the pulse of suffocating night-
Night peering from his dark but fire-lit head
Burns on the day his tense and secret light.

Now they dare not to gloss your savage dream,
O beast of the heart, those saints who cursed your name;
You are the current of the frozen stream,

Shadow invisible, ambushed and vigilant flame.
