For Cecily

December 16, 2010 at 10:32 pm (Uncategorized)

Watched the Buffy episode “Fool for Love” again recently. Y’know the one with Spike’s origin story and this bit of poetry by William Pratt which indirectly led to said origin. (Of course he didn’t find that rhyme for “bulge in it” until the last episode of Angel a century later.)

For Cecily:

My soul is wrapped in harsh repose,
Midnight descends in raven colored clothes,
But soft…Behold!
A sunlight beam,
Cutting a swath of glimmering gleam,
My heart expands…
Tis grown a bulge in it,
Inspired by your beauty…
Effulgent.
