A lovely dream about a beautiful voice..its an edited repost/version.... written in mediaeval style & backdrop.

 

\"\"

Another Winter Midnight…

 

Sweet dreams await me huddled beneath the sheets

With all their subtle designs to torment my night

But quietly I rush out as I hear his longing voice

Through ebon sinister darkness to be his sable bride…

 

I run, I run on velvet clovers

As stars pour forth their radiant wine

I hear the strains “Love you are mine.”

With angel’s lutes and beats divine.

 

At last I find him on a flowery meadow

-a spread on hoary, graying earth-

Ah! My dear Muses’ darling! How my heart melts to see..

Heaven’s songs circling him in their purest ecstasy.

 

….and my own dreams glisten in his deep wistful eyes

-Wherever I go there is no escape-

So I sit by him mesmerized… resting my elbows on back of time.

Well, there is one thing which is very impressive. The choice of words. Seems like the whole dictionary has been in battle field and finally these words won and deserved to get their place in your poetry. Very good :)
