Song of the Solemn Night

June 25, 2009
By Anonymous

As long as thou, the Solemn Night,
Whose silence wakes my song,
Places words in my sight,
I shall write as if I was strong.

In mental corners of deepest dark,
Words I search for currently reside.
But during the night there is a spark,
That causes word and pen to collide.

In midnight peace the words do flow,
And slowly they are raised to life.
With the sparse light but a dim glow,
I forget the world and its strife.

The sun rises for the song is written and sung.
Now my eyes are turning to rejoice at the light,
But I recall from where my song was sprung.
I find my song in you, oh Solemn Night.

I really liked it was focused, powerful, imaginative, and beautiful... I loved it write more and perhaps a bit longer .....

This is very good.  I think if you revised/edited it a bit more it could be amazing.  But Its really good so far.

"The only true love I ever knew
Was behind those downcast eyes
The only comfort I ever felt
Was during those long hours of loneliness
When I felt for you
I do believe
Only innocence can save the world..." -Ocean Soul

This is actually really's better than the usual song lyrics I've read...there isn't much to say for actual poets who have this beauty in writing I see in this...

Nice, really hard to make it rhyme and actually sound good. The only thing I would say is to make it a bit longer, or is that for instrumental inserts?
