    dotsCaveat Emptordots

    My dreams I buy and buy but never sell.
    Some light and dusty with a splendid grind,
    Like gold dust that the eager miners find,
    My dreams inspire, devastate, compel.
    Some cost the ringing of a lone church bell,
    Some take a thousand years when stars aligned
    Within their places, show what lies behind:
    The sable, infinite sidereal.

    I walk at dusk where ruined abbeys sit
    On hills so desolate and drear, alone,
    Where long and lancing silver shadows fall,
    Where dying leaves are blown, where spiders knit
    Their silver webs across the silver stone,
    And watch the autumn leaves blow down the mall.

      You bring to mind the masters of old, a king of prose and emperor of poetry.
    I enjoy the feeling of self-reflection that this piece has, and the way you interweave modern and slightly archaic terminology.
    You are an inspiration.

      Aaaah, such are the dreams of a poet and an adventurer! We are born into, and venture through this world, alone, seeking company! And are shored and reassured, with the passage of time, by our dreams and the muse, and we poets and writers, still alone, seek company!

    The haughty muse visits us with her usual mischief, and we dream on, alone, seeking company!

    Delightful, and very incisive write, my talented friend!
