The Black Dog ~A tale of myth and British folklore~

Nocturnal portent midst meadow and moor,
Revenant and phantom stained in cruor,
Wanders through crossroads and gallows of old,
Piercing orbs through murk and cold.

Alluring eyes to its malevolent stander,
Provocative motif, shadowed outlander,
Hellhound in roam, daunting in dark,
Strolls through thicket betwixt tall grass and bark.

Sombre of origin, morbid and grim,
Calamities follow sighting of brim,
Eyes of fire with desires of pain,
Spectre fades as the fear of remains.
