         Conversion



         "Once upon a midnight dreary"
         the cause was desperation
         to avert the desolation
         of the blackening December

         The hard fate could be avoided
         with celebration all the night
         in beseech for return of light
         like an ember fanned by the wind

         Villagers across the landscape
         paid due homage to the solstice
         and gathered as if a poultice
         on the bleeding wound of winter

         In every pagan ritual
         was found such conversion premise
         and this had the greatest promise
         for stealing the high holy day

Poe-etic justice, eh?

Roses go by many names and all of them are sweet.

Thank you for wandering into the light.

This is a fine 'write!'...

I am particularly fond of the ending:

        "Villagers across the landscape
         paid due homage to the solstice
         and gathered as if a poultice
         on the bleeding wound of winter

         In every pagan ritual
         was found such conversion premise
         and this had the greatest promise
         for stealing the high holy day"

serious applause!

P.S. you chose a grand UserName too!
      [I hope you are able to glide above and/or
        wander through the fine blue sands of
        "P.I.P.-land" more often?!]

With so much..."moon, june, spoon"

out there, I was very impressed with your truly impressive poetry devices.

It is refreshingly deep and a joy to read.

Your rhymes are individual and you have made them your own..soo thoughtful of you.

All the darkness in the universe cannot extinguish the light of a single, burning candle.
