Ebony

Jet is the shade of the evening

Bedarkened by the shadow of the moon

Gloom and fear creeping

Somber eyes sleeping

Creature and mortals melancholy

Bewildered by that Stygian hue

That on their coffins slowly

Lay their frail anatomy

Sable crows and vultures stalk

Under the ghastly pale moon

Nobody dares to talk

Hush and rush they walk

Oh, that Cimmerian darkness!

Lurking in the corners

How you incense cryptic madness

Bewitching the night’s stillness
