I wish that you had lived
To see how your words swell
And fill the hearts of dreamers far
And soothe the ear with rhyming knell

You place your words upon a page
Like a minuet flits across the stage

Is life too fine to touch?
Dreams too fine to dream?
Let loose the soul of all your words
Then hide away to the extreme

You place your words just out of reach
Like dreams dispel at break of sleep

A verse can charm the heavy heart
Like words proposed and soon forgotten
Tell a truth then fling it far
Beyond the rings of Saturn
