Bible Black

Even In Darkness There Is Hope With The Right Friends

Starless and Bible Black

I first heard the phrase Starless and Bible Black as the title of a King Crimson album , and later discovered it was written by Dylan Thomas as part of his wonderful tone poem β€œUnder Milk Wood”, so as we are in this universe and I have stolen this perfect description of the darkest of nights I will share β€œUnder Dub Wood” which uses a King Tubby rhythm track (as used for John Holt’s β€œAli Baba” which you can listen to here) and narration by Sir Richard Burton as the lead in song.

This is a villanelle tribute to the help my Muse gives to me , I had said I was going to bed and then thinking of my Muse prompted this so at one thirty Saturday Morning with the night outside "Starless and Bible Black" I am writing this.

Twas Starless, Bible Black now I'm in light

So frightened of failure, getting it wrong

But your heart and love have brought me to right

πŸ’œ

You guided me through dark , I lost my sight

I had felt alone for so very long

Twas Starless, Bible Black now I'm in light

πŸ’œ

You took my hand and you carried my weight

I thought I was falling , falling headlong

But your heart and love have brought me to right

πŸ’œ

You changed my blackness to brilliant white

You changed my silence to the sweetest song

Twas Starless, Bible Black Now I'm in light

πŸ’œ

Forever together words we will write

Creating a new world, make us so strong

But your heart and love have brought me to right

πŸ’œ

We forge new stories and our fires alight

No more of the darkness, we found our song

Twas Starless, Bible Black Now I'm in light

But your heart and love have brought me to right

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
