Insomnia: redux

byLauren Hynde©

JUDO's iambic pentamenter reworking of  Insomnia

Almost a waning shape, just barely light,
By night, Diana issues her pale glow.
As ends her route above the waves below,
A twin reflects her face quite soft in fright.

Soft subtle murmurs echo through the night.
Within the sleeping lake, cool frogs lay low.
By hoot of owls mens' quiet fears bestow
Between encroaching bushes kept from sight...

With numbing mist, Morfeo takes his toll
So sweet despondency can claim its place
In vain, light hearts thus blessed with loveless soul...

But if I seek enchanted sleep's embrace,
I'm overwhelmed by love and lust's control
And sweetest Kate o'er dreamland gives me chase.
