Alighted on my hands
Danced before my eye
& fluttered through the skies.
Far as far go the lands
Far as far go the skies
Rose with a flame of sighs
And in that hour of crescent moon
And that hour of golden light
They cast forth their melodious croon
And thus began my heavenward flight
Over the hill n’ through the clouds
Through a bed of roses of varied shades
Through woven stars, their heavenly sounds
Left a ray of love of golden shades.
Far across time, when they will fly past
And find me pensive of a solitary heart
They will again dance before my eyes
And bring back to me, my smiling sighs
I will then smile over that golden light
And begin my next heavenward flight.
Thy lands of sweetness might never wane;
Thy echos of love & beauty might never wane;
Thy appearance shall never fail to entrance me;
Thy bond shall never fail to enhance me.
For all these years, together, we never have been;
Yet your Incessant Grace, I’ve always seen;
And now I find you my closest, loveliest shadow;
Inspiring me, encouraging me, like a rainbow.
For were it not for you, and your love, serene;
Were it not for you, and your beauty, serene;
There might have come a time when writings failed;
Several rhymes betrayed, several songs failed.
And therefore, honestly today, I apprise you;
I have, for months, and still do, love you
A lone figure, sitting by my side;
And I, flowing softly,
With sonorous splashes, he the waiting one, I, the waited one.
A bench by a river, serving anyone, everyone, unbiased;
If only life could be thought so, fair, and just…
How great the world would be? How wonderful???
Ohh, what a dream.
Thought I could write a novel;
could not, daft ideas, bore.
No problem, several kinds of prose;
do exist in literature, several I adore.
Thought I could write a story;
could not, again the same blank.
Then again, no problem, I can always
cross this river on another plank.
Thought I could write a poem;
again no, blank head, no words flow.
This time, problem, for what else;
can I write, nothing else I know?
Well, you ask what did I end up with now;
Can’t you see, can’t you see, what you’re reading now?
