To Guide And Delight

My reality secure

from the attacking winds

 

Sheltered by experience,

a fortress hard won

 

Neither fortune nor danger

can force their way in

 

All entrance is barred,

a mystery respun

 

An Eden contained,

in a legend foretold

 

Where peace and solitude

rekindle the light

 

Possessed of itself,

past-futures on hold

 

Its voice omnipresent

—to guide and delight

 

(Broomall Pennsylvania: August, 2019)
