My original poem, written in 2012, is based on the TV series broadcast from 1966-1971, Dark Shadows (c) Dan Curtis Productions.
Dark Shadows. Just think of all of the foggy scenic nights, running outdoors rendezvous, hypnotic eyes at the mantel-and all of the Gothic romance. True Love. Barnabas Collins has long since departed to find Angelique.
Barnabas' Winter Lament for Josette
Walk in to the season.
The light is stick trees,
A small reaching veil,
A sleeping wind:
At the white pane,
The metal gray
With bright lights
And a few warm days to keep
The snow for the winter,
Through early fall:
Cool frost, paper window stars,
Wispy pale blue wind ready to snow.
