By Lamont Turner

My saunter led me far to see
the mocking myriads revelry,
among the hoary withered trees,
upon the clouded crystal seas,
where sanguine spirits never dwell
  __ __ the twilight heart of Mystic Dell.

Where heaven and hell through awe have stayed,
for wonder of the acts displayed,
beneath the rainbow colored skies,
all conflict with a humble sigh.
Where demons prance in ceaseless dance,
while angels flirt a careless glance,
as I, in fright,
by the ghostly light
of one thousand wicked eyes,
read the fate of sanity
within their hollow eyes.
