“ Searching ” ~ for an alter ego ~


Searching ever so

For an alter ego,

As one not long ago

Feigned to have been

Was found to be a foe,

A possible doppelgänger

Whose ruse made find

The now and then

Had shades of idle time,

Did cagily fix to lend

A way to render bind,

If but to hide pretend

The making of a friend!




“ Alter Ego ” ~ close trusted friend ~


That alter ego

Remembers then,

Close trusted friend

Far better when,

Knew of a time

Needn’t a rhyme,

With aide-mémoire

For friend of mind,

To so find time

Not to misuse

But to miss have,

The memory of

Un ami sage,

Close trusted friend!
