Zane's Poem is one of the Collectibles found in Alan Wake. It is one of the pages of the Departure manuscript. It can only be obtained in Nightmare Mode.

Manuscript text[]

I'd first heard the poem in a dream, recited by a strange UFO-like light. I'd read it again in the cabin, in a book by Thomas Zane:

For he did not know

That beyond the lake

He called home

Lies a deeper, darker

Ocean green

Where waves are

Both wilder

And more serene

To its ports I've been

To its ports I've been.


The page can be found pinned to the mesh fence surrounding the old generator of the mine encampment.
