Mephistopheles

Mephistopheles

A Poem by W.R. Singleton

Archaic, lost in time's recourse
The Necromancer speaks with prophetic stave
Trust, his mysticical visions force
Invitations to dance on the devil's grave
Quo vidas, Faust come break of dawn
Search under moonlight and Saturn's alchemy
A credulous soul awaits upon
Dark Tyrant Mephistopheles the enemy
Eternal, forsaking all of life's delight
Dreams to come, a final end
to love's respite

rich language, steady flow and a well stated and poignant view of old Beezle Bubba and his welcoming victim! I love Faust. It was before it's time. A great bit of allusion.

Cheers!
