Isis by Night
She lived in shadows, of the shades of night
Her breath was coldness as the bitter frost may bite
No one knew the spells she weaved, a lonely secret still
Her faces were so many, she could heal and she could kill
Her house was just a cottage that stood behind the trees
Folks said they’d seen the oddity of sand upon the breeze
No one went to visit her by day, when sun was near
But nighttime brought the sick to her, by those who held no fear
They talked of feathered wings she had against the darkening sky
They said the desert sands were in her home and mountains high
They lost the plight that ailed them when they stepped into her world
But others thought of madness at the stories they unfurled
I saw her by the river, I saw her crying tears
I saw her searching desperately, I wondered at her fears
I wondered why the goddesses were made to learn their place
I wondered why I thought of this when’er I saw her face
They said she was a goddess, but mortal now by day
They say she moved of magicks and of the world of fae
They say she’d lost her husband and faced an awful curse
By day she was but fragile and by night she had to nurse
No time this lonely goddess had to find her lover gone
For when the sick were better there came the light of dawn
What a dreaded figure who hides from suns in fright
It breaks my pagan heart to know that Isis weeps by night
