Count Ruzéno

by Melina Raven Maness Diebold

Count Ruzéno

lost his family

in the darkness of the night


He wasn't there

to hear their pleas

or to witness their fevered fight


He was away

near the Rhine

and now they are all gone


Erzebet, dear Erzebet

and Oleg and Inga

have left him all alone


He'll fight to sleep

and dreams will shy away

With his eyes watching the moon


Cursing the night

her zircon-stars shining

Cursing the Kalandornõ's boon


Author's Note: don't you love dreams?
