Eleven Past the Hour

Snow White flakes falling down
Hover briefly before touch the ground
Lost forever now together as one
A cold white blanket all around.
Branches reach upward heaven high
As the wind echoes a desperate cry.
Forgotten it seems the hope of Spring
Back when life and new flowers team.
Now death cast its shadow all around
Its silence echoes a chilling empty sound.
In the lonely wilderness of the silent wood
Here alone in my quiet agony stood,
As it seemed to be all hope was gone for good
It was here in this desperate moment at last understood.
It was at eleven past the hour that moment in time
That I found the answer to the riddle in my mind
Of why it was to be that here alone in this place I be.
For as the trees roots are deep in the ground
So to it is here that the answer be found
Deep inside is where the roots quench their thirst
For inside it is that from within life burst forth.
Will not again the light of Spring shine
Just as it had in my memories mind
And the trees now bare will bloom with leaves so fair
And time will again mend that which no more
Could stand before the winter’s winds in store?
And so to my Persephone enchained to Hades reign
A torch light gleams for now it seems
That whilst on demon wings this hour teams
It can be said that life be but a dream
For which sadly we are the master it does thus seem.
For you alone have the power to cast forth upon this hour
The light of Spring and with the hope of new life sing.
Look to me oh sweet Persephone for thy lute plays
Of things which from forth within thy memories lay
That give birth to tomorrow a new light’s day.

Artist's Description

When one stares into the dark abyss of life, one might see the abyss stare back. This is a reflection of ourselves… for some, this brings hope, others fear. We are all of light and dark, and it is in the balance of the two one finds peace.
