NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 15 – “Midnight Is Now Alive” by David Ellis – A Found Poem Inspired by “Paul Revere’s Ride” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Hey there everyone.

I’ve now hit the halfway milestone for National Poetry Writing Month, so allow me to say that the only way is up, baby, for you and me now! 🙂

NaPoWriMo.net – Day 15

Regarding my prompt for today, I sort of used something from the NaPoWriMo.net website, in that I picked a poem that they mentioned over there as my inspiration by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and you can find the lyrics to it below.

“Paul Revere’s Ride” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow over at poets.org

And here is my found poem, thank you ever so much for reading it, hope you all enjoy it.

“Midnight Is Now Alive” by David Ellis

 

Listen and you shall hear

Midnight is now alive

That famous friend

The land and sea spread

Through every moon over the bay

Magnified by its own tide

With eager ears

The sound of the shore

Moving shapes beneath the hill so still

Seeming to whisper a spell

Of secret thoughts

Where the impatient, heavy with moonlight

Spark into flame

Its heat tranquil, mystic

Its edge, loud

That rises when sun goes down

Into bare breath of breeze

Blowing over meadows asleep

First to emerge again at the turn of the road

Through to the last hour of need

People will waken and listen to hear

Of midnight, revere

    • Thank you very much Angela, I appreciate you very much! I keep falling behind but I’m sure I will make it through the thirty days. And I still want to binge through all your poems, I can’t wait to explore them all individually when the writing deadline is behind us 😉
