Midnight Drear

Over me cast.
Dimness dreaded.
Ghost shape drawn.
Spirit black dreamt.
Darkness spread.
Shape drawn.
Cast shade.

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is “…take one of your favorite poems and find a very specific, concrete noun in it….  After you’ve chosen your word, put the original poem away and spend five minutes free-writing associations – other nouns, adjectives, etc.  Then use your original word and the results of your free-writing as the building blocks for a new poem.”  I took shadow from The Raven.  Not necessarily my all-time favorite poem.  Honestly, I don’t know that I have one favorite poem.
