Black Spirits

by Eric Angus

Age Group: Adult



I look to the North.
There I see the solitary stars
Winking in the Well of Void.
No light but theirs to stand watch
Over the restless dead that writhe
And claw their way up from their Earthly Tomb.
I am swept away into a Sea of Bones.
A chill wind rattles my flesh.
I am the only living thing here.

They crave the beating heart inside me.
Their putrid breath…I gag and wretch…
Above, a ghostly crow cries out his song.
He swoops between the stars,
A vision of his Mistress,
The Dread Queen of Death.
In her caves, I meet my initiation
With the Dead.

O, Black Spirits that prey on Life,
Who moan and scream for remembrance,
I shall be your keeper.
I shall lay white lilies on your graves,
And leave meat for the Faery Hounds.
I shall draw life out of the living
And create a balm for your past wounds.

Then, when the earth cracks at Midnight Sun,
And all the vaults of Hell open with a frightening whine,
You will remember me in turn,
And I shall join your furious horde,
Dancing upon the clouds
Of the Wild Rade.
