Regent Emergent

September 1, 2015

To whom should I address this verse except
To you, my sleeping voice? For only you
Can sing and still hear its song. Precept
Will follow hard upon a regency too blue
For eyes and ears except your own, that is,
That are mine. Mind and mine are always one,
So philosophers have shown. Orpheus
Always arrives to take control, has fun,
Then leaves.  So bestial. So like a man to fuss.
To forget both his song and his duty.
So like a king, his killer’s crib began
With an infancy vowed to futurity.
Yet regency is ended with a chair.
His kingdom is only a dream to share.
