Bookshelf and Bottle of Wine
This online world of errors and false views
I hope my happiness finds time to rise
maybe with knowledge I can compromise
since what one knows one can certainly use.
No need to let this beauty offered sour
and let our gifts get lost within our spleen
to consume meat that’s relatively lean
remember the touch from sunshine power.
To hope to find a fire on every height
and swim the silver stream of golden times
avoid the awakening of unrest.
I’d like to bring my bookshelf to your sight
to move attention to some decent rhymes
then open bottle of your very best.
So let me stay and amuse you with art
then show you page and page from book and book
a hidden phrase removed from secret nook
maybe some inspiration for a start.
The ocean calls from a glistening bay
to feel unruly unrest awaken
then ensure a measured time is taken
after wine we will limit what we say.
The day before us the night behind us
an extremely quiet world lies below
when our spirits wings will not change their shape.
oh please let us spend our time without fuss
as we discuss how slow our gardens grow
and share these books we’ve used for our escape.
My artist heart still feels weary unrest
a multiplicity that is hard kept
an honest nature that has truly wept
without requirement to do my best.
Please listen there are two souls in my breast
one soul is deadly jealous of other
the other quiet and beaten brother
our lovely meeting put all this to rest.
Both souls will quest on ancestral lights
as spirits sway between earth and the sky
sweep me into golden vapors of life.
I hope to find a fire on every height
we drink some wine and never question why
the choice of vase with the purple loosestrife.
