Poem by James Joyce


Nightpiece


Gaunt in gloom,
The pale stars their torches,
Enshrouded, wave.
Ghostfires from heavens far verges faint illume,
Arches on soaring arches,
Nights sindark nave.

Seraphim,
The lost hosts awaken
To service till
In moonless gloom each lapses muted, dim,
Raised when she has and shaken
Her thurible.

And long and loud,
To nights nave upsoaring,
A starknell tolls
As the bleak incense surges, cloud on cloud,
Voidward from the adoring
Waste of souls.
