Mathias Jansson – POE’S RAVEN

Under the dying oak
with ancient runes
carved into the old bark
I see a dark stain
on the soil
from the ancient one

Thirteen candles
as black as night
stand in a circle
burning so bright
in the silver streaming moon light

My dear you stand alone
in the candle light
shivering with fear
but be patient
soon he will be here
In his endless eyes
you thin white lace
and your beautiful pale face
will burn
in the eternal flames

It will consume your heart
and your soul
and as a black raven

You will fly to the sky

With a croaking cry
