Limericks, sonnets, and great epic tales
Flash steadily before my looming view
My fervor while reading, which never fails
Brings delight and joy from stories anew.
Voyaged to whereabouts both near and far
From this point of time to years long ago
Feeling the crisp air while in a fast car
To the wind sailing a ship to and fro.
I read of journeys in Homer’s stories
And sensed the emotion in current songs
Through lines and stanzas detailing glories
The most precious actions needn’t length long.
Paragraphs didn’t free me like blue birds
The resilient parts arose from few words.
