New Life

Escaping into verse,

  the base of the castle rumbled,

  the ground beneath was shaken

  with new cracks inside its walls

 

Escaping into verse,

  all towering deception crumbled,

  as the self-anointed jumped and fell

  landing prostrate and so small

 

Escaping into verse,

  the mime shouted out enabled,

  his silent thunder raining down

  with a message now to scald

 

Escaping into verse,

  a new steeple built and gabled

  its bell to ring a lyric toll  

    —new life to those recalled

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2015)
