The Gleeful Gloam

Under the moon's bright glory


in tenebrous night-time I roam


but I tell a different story


for I am a gleeful Gloam


 


Blissful and stout are the Noondays


under the sun's hot glare


and elegant ghosts are the Longrays


gliding in golden light's air


 


Midlights their owners enamor


with shapechanging magic of light


working their age-old glamour


then fading at dawning of night


 


We Gloam are not known for our gloating


but rather our glowering gloom


to the dark our existence devoting


filled with glumness and drabness and doom


 


But I say the day's overrated


with its brightness and glimmer and glow


and its merriment exaggerated


so its glaring I'll gladly forego


 


In exchange for the witchingest hour


for things that glean life at nightfall


for starshine and meteor showers


for the owl's and cricket's sweet call


 


So take heart, all you nightshadow beings


and fill your black shade-hearts with glee


the stygian night is quite freeing


and the Moon's sun enough for me
