VIEW OF A STYLITE

FROM THIS LOFTY ERIE

THIS WINDSWEPT IDYLL,

HUMANITY SINGS

A DISTANT THRENODY,

I DON’T HEAR THE WORDS,

BUT THE TUNE IS FAMILIAR…

 

I THOUGHT THIS WAS AN OUT,

A WAY TO DETACH…PREPARE,

FOR THE NEXT LIFE.

BUT THE BUZZ OF HUMANITY,

IS INSISTENT,

AND THOUGH THE DOWN DRAFT

SENDS YOU CRASHING BACK,

WHERE YOU HAVE TO ENGAGE

 

IT TAKES A SPECIAL ACOLYTE

TO DENY YOUR DEIFICATION…

TO SAY LORD YOU ARE WRONG,

AND AS COOL AS THE LOFTY AIR,

YOU ASPIRE TO…

YOU ARE STILL OF THIS WORLD,

COME DRINK, QUENCH YOUR THIRST,

FOR DUST IS YET AWAY OFF!

 

SLIDE BACK DOWN AND HEAR,

THE MELODY IN FULL,

THE TIME FOR QUIET WILL BE SOON ENOUGH,

SO ENJOY THE THRONG WHILST YOU CAN,

TILT NO MORE AT WINDMILLS,

DIVE BACK IN, THE WATERS LOVELY.

 

FOR JASMINE.

DALE ‘M’
