Nights in White Satin epilogue, Late Lament: spoken by Graeme Edge of the Moody Blues in their amazing 1967 album, Days of Future Passed

Breath deep
The gathering gloom
Watch lights fade
From every room
Bedsitter people
Look back and lament
Another day’s useless
Energy spent

Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours
From our sight
Red is gray and
Yellow white
But we decide
Which is right
Which is an Illusion


Moody Blues: Say It With Love
