Song of the Solemn Night

June 25, 2009
By , Alexandria, VA
As long as thou, the Solemn Night,
Whose silence wakes my song,
Places words in my sight,
I shall write as if I was strong.

In mental corners of deepest dark,
Words I search for currently reside.
But during the night there is a spark,
That causes word and pen to collide.

In midnight peace the words do flow,
And slowly they are raised to life.
With the sparse light but a dim glow,
I forget the world and its strife.

The sun rises for the song is written and sung.
Now my eyes are turning to rejoice at the light,
But I recall from where my song was sprung.
I find my song in you, oh Solemn Night.

I really liked it was focused, powerful, imaginative, and beautiful... I loved it write more and perhaps a bit longer .....

This is very good.  I think if you revised/edited it a bit more it could be amazing.  But Its really good so far.

This is actually really's better than the usual song lyrics I've read...there isn't much to say for actual poets who have this beauty in writing I see in this...

Nice, really hard to make it rhyme and actually sound good. The only thing I would say is to make it a bit longer, or is that for instrumental inserts?
