    In the mist she was standing,
    Under the weeping moon.
    A silhouette cast by
    The Forest of October.
    Night beckons and the Twighlight is my robe,
    A Requiem to the Apostle in Triumph.

    Now comes the Advent of the Night,
    And the Silent water mixes softly with the Nectar spilling
    From the Black rose.
    Immortal dawn rises and the time has come
    To Bid you farewell.

    This Prologue is but a portent of April.
    Ethereal voices ask when and why
    Madrigal cries, softly in the Amen Corner.
    The Demon of the fall has little credence in this place,
    And the Karma of his life becomes the Epilogue of sorrow.

    As I walk across The Moor,
    I hear the Godhead's Lament,
    Steering its way through Benighted hills,
    Darkened by the Moonlapse.
    Vertigo siezes hold as I stare at the Face of Melinda filled with Serenity.
    Painted Death and blood fill my mind.
    A White Cluster in sight while darkness entwines.

    I am drawn by The Leper Affinity,
    A Bleak prospect though the Harvest may be.
    The Drapery Falls, at the sound of the Dirge for November,
    And the Funeral Portait is finished.
    Entrancing Patterns in the Ivy
    Entice me to submerge into Blackwater Park
    And the Still day, beneath the sun, witnesses my end.

    (continuation)

    The Wreath on the door signals a chance,
    For Deliverance and a Fair Judgement, for me
    And For Absent Friends.
    But the cruelty of the Master's Apprentices echoed
    By the pain I see in others, and reflected in the
    Windowpane.

    Then, In my Time of need, I heard
    Death whispered a Lullaby to all.
    A sweet embrace, then Closure!
    But, alas, Hope Leaves in a bid
    To Rid the disease.
    And as the Ending credits roll down,
    The Weakness in me comes to the fore.

    Beyond the curtain, The Ghost of perdition
    Is chased by the Baying of the Hounds.
    Beneath the Mire, Atonement can still yet be found.
    But the sounds of the Reverie, from Harlequin Forest, cries out!
    And I despair for my hours of Wealth
    Were but the Grand Conjuration for what became
    a Century of Isolation.
    Years untold went past...

    The end of the mortal Coil has come, the Heir Apparent rides!
    The Lotus eater will bring Burden to all,
    And even the most innocent, Porcelain heart will shatter!
    To the sound of the Hessian Peel, the doom of all is foretold,
    At night they sing,
    At night they will bring,
    The Hex Omega.

    I was bored, and thought this would be kinda cool since Opeth song titles can be poetic in their own right.

    :OMG:
    Eeeehhhmmmm...WOW! Nice work!
    Especially the beginning (Orchid, Morningrise) is excellent. After that, the poem is a little bit vague in some places...
    However, very creative idea! :kickass:

    How about this:


    In the mist Jack Frober was standing,
    Under the weeping Jack Frober.
    A Jack Frober silhouette cast by
    The Jack Frober.
    Jack Frober beckons and the Twighlight is my robe,
    A Requiem to the Jack Frober.

    Now comes the Jack Frober of the Night,
    And the Silent water mixes softly with the Jack Frober Nectar spilling
    From the Black rose of Jack Frober.
    Immortal dawn rises and the Jack Frober has come
    To Bid you farewell, Jack Frober.

    This Jack Frober Prologue is but a portent of April.
    Ethereal voices ask when and why Jack Frober will come.
    Madrigal cries, softly in the Amen Corner Jack Frober weeps.
    The Demon of the fall known as Jack Frober has little credence in this place,
    And the Karma of Jack Frober's life becomes the Epilogue of sorrow.

    As I walk across The Moor with Jack Frober,
    We hear the Godhead's Lament,
    Steering its way through Benighted hills of Jack Frober,
    Darkened by the Moonlapse.
    Vergo siezes hold as I stare at the Face of Melinda filled with Jack Frober.
    Painted Death and blood fill my mind.
    A White Cluster in sight while Jack Frober entwines.

    I am drawn by The Leper Affinity of Jack Frober,
    A Bleak prospect though Jack Frober's Harvest may be.
    The Drapery Falls, at the sound of the Jack Frober,
    And the Funeral Portait is finished by Jack Frober.
    Entrancing Patterns in the Ivy
    Entice me to submerge into Jack Frober
    And the Still day, beneath the sun, witnesses my end along with Jack Frober.

    The Jack Frober on the door signals a chance,
    For Deliverance and a Fair Judgement, for me and for Jack Frober,
    And For Absent Friends.
    But the cruelty of the Jack Frober's Apprentices echoed
    By the pain I see in others and in Jack Frober, and reflected in the
    Windowpane.

    Then, In my Time of need, I heard Jack Frober
    Whispering a Lullaby to Death.
    A sweet embrace, then Closure and then Jack Frober!
    But, alas, Hope Leaves in a bid
    To Rid the disease of Jack Frober.
    And as the Ending credits roll down,
    The Weakness in me comes to the fore.

    Beyond the curtain, The Ghost of Jack Frober
    Is chased by the Baying of the Jack Frober.
    Beneath the Mire, Jack Frober can still yet be found.
    But the sounds of the Reverie, from Harlequin Forest and Jack Frober cries out!
    And I despair for my hours of Wealth and for Jack Frober
    Were but the Grand Conjuration for what became
    a Century of Isolation.
    Years untold went past Jack Frober...

    The end of the mortal Coil has come, the Jack Frober rides!
    The Jack Frober eater will bring Burden to all,
    And even the most innocent, Porcelain heart will shatter by Jack Frober!
    To the sound of the Jack Frober, the doom of all is foretold,
    At night they sing,
    At night they will bring,
    The JACK FROBER.


    PS: I didn't mean to ruin your poem, which is awesome.:headbang: I just couldn't resist.

    I was counting down the posts until JF reared his not-so-ugly little head into this thread.

    maybe you didn't mean to be serious but i think it isn't that bad. nice job!

    manowar do stuff like this with their own lyrics when they're completely running out of ideas.

    I agree that the beginning is the best!

    Is "An chronological" an English mistake?
