Flight Of Fancy

by Nevada Kerr

Mother wit, maiden speech
Confide the reason why
In the stars at birth
Voice and song reside

Forest satyrs kiss
The curtain falls to rise
Stubborn lips or deep abyss
Phantom flesh abides

Resist the brittle quip
The twice told tale revised
Sharper thoughts that tear the page
Bedazzle mortal eyes

Start fresh now or never
What has been is gone
The portal closes in due season
Just before the dawn

Wonder bubble, timely trouble
The merry fool survives
The poet's frenzy boils over
Earth and sky collide

Make no bones of verse and prose
The tuneful nine of air
Before the ink is dry
The muse will disappear
