Hail you! Misty nocturnal soft droplets

Slow stream of drizzle upon thatch roof;

Shrouded Queen gleams her cool radiance

Fuming fog unleashes audacious arrogance.


Stupor hearts of blatant buildings under quilt

Sprawling silence freezes the vapour lamps;

Frenzied frost shivers in succession

Absence of sporadic barking pertains to awful desolation.


Somnolent duet in exceptional vigour unto yonder

Promising hands of mingled souls glance towards;

Indefinite assertion in such blessed silence

North Star! Witness! Kneel down for inner essence.


Silent gesture ached the nervous heart to mirth

Dear! Would you be mine forever birth?
