I have to think of a good song that matches this poem. I would prefer an instrumental, but any suggestions help. Thanks in advance!

Heres the poem:

Crossing The Water


Black lake, black boat, two black, cut-paper people.
Where do the black trees go that drink here?
Their shadows must cover Canada.

A little light is filtering from the water flowers.
Their leaves do not wish us to hurry:
They are round and flat and full of dark advice.

Cold worlds shake from the oar.
The spirit of blackness is in us, it is in the fishes.
A snag is lifting a valedictory, pale hand;

Stars open among the lilies.
Are you not blinded by such expressionless sirens?
This is the silence of astounded souls.
Pissed.

Wait.. a song that's already made that you wanna put your lyrics over? Mebbe just do something slow like Planet Caravan?

Vikings? What Vikings? We are but poor, simple farmers. The village was burning when we got here, and the people must have slain themselves.

Not all poems rhyme...

But yeah, this is an already written poem and I need an already written song that has a dark and mysterious kind of feel to it. Preferably an instrumental.

sort through some ambient music, if you want instrumental, until you find a vibe that you think fits the mood of the poem.

may i suggest The Boards of Canada specifically the album The Campfire Headphase


here are some songs off that album

EDIT:

if you want some dark music check out Aphex Twin. they have some songs that are just downright disturbing.

Thanks NoLaurelTree000, I resorted to Aphex Twin's "Come To Daddy" and besides the fact that my soul is pretty much destroyed after watching that horrible video, I think it will work for my project. I appreciate it.
