“ Years Moreover ” ~ before the dark ~

I’ve sought living

Years moreover,

As man’s dream

Be time wanting,

Leaves me plead

Ne’er be enough,

Though I concede

Years so far lived,

Holds clearly best

Be time life gave,

Save so ascribed

A morose grave,

As destined site

Fixed be man’s fate,

Thus beg stall plight

For score or more,

Before the dark,

Becomes eternal night!     

                            ode to friend Basile, now in eternal night…

“ Mental Silence ” ~ said nature’s alibi ~

 

There are feelings

You’d wish press

With words astute,

To thus express

Desperate wanting

Would find redress…

 

Yet what ensues

Holds but stated

Morose meaning,

Beyond the reach

That now inhibits

Once motor habits,

Said nature’s alibi

For mental silence!
