Darkness rules the silent dale,
closer, tighten heart and night.
Magic spends this lovely vale,
caressing us with softened light.
Frozen the field, congealed the hill,
white over, a grey foggy gown.
Dying embers defy the chill,
in paling blue the stars glare down.
Breathless assault the deep desire,
hands follow-on our dream.
Senses engulfed with drunken fire,
naked, lost, such madding stream.
Oh heartless dawn, eternity's demise,
I still savour all your shine.
Seclusion, lonely, there is no rise,
a single night can I call mine.
