The stars come out , punctuating the drapes for  the silent theater ;
Of the coming night-time unscripted drama
As the night she  spreads her scrolls of human  frailties
And untold tidings of a day yet unborn ,
All across the hemisphere of nightfall hue

Just across the dimming bay
Where warm air rises to meet the cooler
The sea fog forms in bilious  clouds
And here are captured all our  day long felonies, and frailties.
Swirling in the miasma as it rises 

Here these deceptions lurk like ethereal  noxious vapours
There in the deepest  dark;
Sliced as with a scimitar , only by the silent gliding gannet wing.
And all our perfidies are safe with her

But they coalesce into  the unseen perilous boulders
To ensnare the souls departed , yet not arrived ,
And which may founder , in their lost wanderings;
Where no light- house guides their way
And a thousand fiendish  sirens call them out
To their  silent wave-less , strand- less Seas


More eyes peer out  the dark as it descends
Blinking at the passing  livid clouds
Laden with doubt, deceit and  deceptions, of the day.

 And the soul of the night sky encrypts every one
And wearily enters each as a sad nocturne;

On the scroll of  the unfolded  the night
All the lies freshly today told
The betrayals  this day wrought ;
The theft of mind , of soul and sense;  of  every human recourse,
Drift without  remorse , till the vapours disperse these demons
And the daylight lifts the curtain of the drama
And the un-arrived souls can  swoon on the gilded gannet wings again
And drift untroubled in the skies till they find their destiny
