Harbingers of Unimagined Horrors
Music: Night on Bald
By Modest Moussorgsky.
Sequenced by Tony Matthews at Kunst der Fuge.
|Harbingers of unimagined horrors,|
Avatars of those who rule the night,
Lurking in the shallows of our shadows
Like fish that lack the lungs to breathe the light;
Omens from an almanac of sorrows
Written on a midnight long ago,
Etched into the mirrors of our marrows,
Ever masks for what we dare not know:
Now revel with us till the cocks thrice crow!
