Pilgramage

Standard

Linger with me,
old winding streets
Rattle my bones,
gray, rain soaked cold

Cobbles and spires
denied the fires
Along the banks
my soul gives thanks

A wayward muse
forgets her ruse
Of you I dream
my sweet release

Secret Passage

Standard

Black tunnels
forget the light
Courage
is not free
Storms take flight
stealing faith
Strength
has a price
Fog descends
spiting North
Endurance
pays the fee
