A FLEET OF STORMCLOUDS HID THE MORNING LIGHT (October 11, 2013)

A fleet of stormclouds hid the morning light

The chariot of Helios, its golds

Amid the azures halcyon unfolds,

Behind the battle lines of day-in-night

I grieve as for a friend untimely lost

Whose springtime company my spirit sought

And ‘neath such gloomy tides I mourn my lot

That Heaven’s barriers cannot be crossed

O, ring of billowed smoke! How can it be

That day resembles dusk’s dim candle snuffed?

Who’d wish Elijah’s beams behind a tuft

Of melancholy and a falling sea?

  Though day may pass, Apollo out of reach

  I pray tomorrow he the clouds will breach
