THE VAMPIRE MOON, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The vital vapors to absorb
Last Line: In wintriness as cold.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Life; Moon

The vital vapors to absorb,
The moon, with famished gaze,
Suspends her lean, malignant orb
Above a dying face.

I watch her like a folded flower,
As silently expand
The pulses waving hour by hour
And heavier the hand,

Till she hath brimmed her cup; and I
An empty chalice hold;
My heart, in agony, as dry,
In wintriness as cold.
